“Not Disabilities At All, More [Like] Abilities”
Patrick Henry Hughes was blind and crippled at birth. He was born with-out eyes and had a condition which left him bound to a wheelchair.
When his parents saw that their child was born with a handicap they asked themselves “Why us.”
It wasn’t till a year later till that feeling faded away. On his first birthday, his parents placed him in front of a piano. To their surprise, their baby boy was able to hit the correct keys that his father would play to him.
As Patrick grew, so did his passion and talent. By grade school, he was playing old standards, by high school the blues. By the time he was in college at the University of Louisville, he had captivated everyone around him with his trumpet and piano capabilities.
His ability to awe others around him never quit!
