Did this article fail to mention Art Tatum comes from the Black American community? Something about this article makes a talented person sound like a performing circus freak. As I said first, the article seems to marginalise the community Mr. Tatum is from. The same community I am from.

So true. SP is teaching us every day this is not only a possibility but a fact.

Sometimes the Universe gives you exactly what you need when you need it - I was feeling very down this morning because I've been coping with a seemingly impossible situation... this story has made me hopeful again. Thank you very much for sharing.

"What he had no business doing" has nothing to do with his color and everything to do with his handicap.

I am so moved by this article. What an inspiration! It is so true that there are no limits to what can be done when limits set by man are taken out of the way and the human spirit is allowed to soar. Thank you for sharing this story.

I'm inspired by this story as I prepare for a long backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail. I know with a mix of faith and determination, anything is possible! Thanks for the inspiring photo, too.

I grew up on this artist music (my Mom was a big fan), loved it then and now! Great story.
