Mentally Challenged, Musical Genius

http://60minutes.yahoo.com/segment/91/rex

 

Meet Rex: A little boy with both a severe disability and a great genius. He is a musical savant. Rex was born blind, with brain damage so severe it looked as though he would never walk, talk, or do much of anything. And yet, he has a musical talent few of us can imagine. Lesley Stahl has been following the amazing story of Rex Lewis-Clack for more than four years.

 

I personally LOVE the discovering genius clip. How amazing is that? Not to mention the good mistakes clip (in the lower section beneath the 4 main video's) It was so cute at the end it almost made me tear up a little!

No one has any thoughts on this? Personally I have plenty...Maybe I'll just have a convo about it with myself ; P

 

Isn't that amazing?

 

Yes, it really is. It's nice to see the news focusing on something so uplifting.

 

Agreed.
