China's REALLY Got Talent

There is a young man living in Beijing who lost both his arms as a child.  At age 18, he decided he was going to learn to play the piano.  He learned to play the only way he could, by playing with his feet.  This is one of those stories of triumph that transcends every divisible measure of humanity.  Who is not moved by this kid's achievement?

His name is Liu Wei, and he is pretty much one of the most awesome people who ever lived.

Wow, that's just completely incredible. Usually I hate when people use others with disabilities as 'examples' for why we should be grateful or whatever. But this guy...his playing is beautiful, even if he were using his hands. To me it's the dedication that's moving...and some of the quotes from this video were inspiring. "You demonstrate talent within talent." So cool.
