17-year-old self-taught pianist born with only four fingers has an important message to share with the world


Humans have a tendency to take things for granted. We often focus on the things we don’t have and wish to acquire as well as compare ourselves to individuals who are better off than us. We do this without counting our blessings for the things we already own.
