I've been playing the piano since I was about 6 years old.  I still don't really think I play it correctly, and that's using ALL of my digits.  You have to see this kid.  Talk about overcoming the odds! 

His name is Landon Weeks and is only 17 years old. According to CNN.com, he has a condition that causes him to have extremely short arms and only two fingers total!  It's a condition called phocemilia.   But does that stop him?  Gee, let's see?

It got him an audition on America's Got Talent.  Note to Landon:  It wouldn't matter whether you got on the show or not.  You are still a hero to all with any kind of "disability".  I put that word in quotes, because you and so many others have shown that that's a word in name only.  In real life you can overcome anything if you put your mind to it! 

(Wow, after seeing him, I better start taking piano lessons again!)
