Nothing Would Stop Patrick, Nothing!

Patrick Henry Hughes was born blind and unable to walk, you might think he would be mad at the world. But no, he is example that we should all follow. He once said…”Big deal! He (God) gave me the musical talents I have, and the great opportunity to meet new people.” You see anybody else might have just given up, but no Patrick, he focused on his strength and succeeded 🙂

His national fame began in 2006 while a student at the . At the suggestion of Louisville’s marching band director, Dr. Greg Byrne, Patrick Henry joined the Louisville Marching Band  playing trumpet while his father pushed him in his wheelchair through the marching routines. This visible commitment attracted increasing crowd and media attention throughout the fall football season, and the pair of Patricks were featured in a variety of television and newspaper coverage.  (from Wikipedia)

That notoriety made Patrick Henry an example to a lot of disabled people who needed the strength to find a purpose in live. Patrick gave them that!

    Notoriety is not a positive thing

    • Notoriety is fame for wrongdoing. Al Capone was notorious. John Wayne Gacy is notorious. Bonnie and Clyde, Lizzie Borden, Jesse James, Lucretia Borgia, Jack the Ripper, Charles Manson, Charles Ponzi, notorious one and all. They stole people’s hard earned money, or murdered them; they lied and cheated and broke faith. They did wrong and were famous for their evil deeds. I don’t think this father and son qualify as notorious. There’s nothing wrong with a young man overcoming obstacles to participate in activities that give many people pleasure, and nothing wrong with his dad helping him do it. There’s surely nothing wrong with the fame they get for doing that.
