An amazing and inspiring video of an autistic girl and her abilities:

Yes, I realize there is a spectrum of autistism. In addition, this kid had access to a remarkble program when she was young. Instead of asking why should she get the attention with her advantages, we should ask why more autistic kids don't have access to programs at an esrly age.


I never thought of 'Firework' as a particularly inspiring song. However, after listening to the lyrics as sung by this child and her take on it, I will never hear it the same way again.
She is indeed a firework and singing brightly across the sky to make us all take notice of gifts hidden by a fog.

2. Awesome video

I had seen the video before and it has really stayed with me. I agree that I will never hear the song again in the same way.
