Speech and singing are processed in different parts of the brain, so people with severe aphasia that can't speak--or can only speak a few words--are able to sing fluently.  The guy in the video reminds me of a former patient of mine that had severe aphasia and apraxia (difficulty with motor planning-so he know what to say, but can't physically say it) of speech.  He couldn't say any words volitionally, but could swear just fine. lol  He could also sing "happy birthday" perfectly fluently.  Thank you for sharing this.  It brought tears to my eyes.  I am going to share with my speech therapist colleagues.   :)

I suppose this is one of those do you consider it, half full or half empty situations. I myself almost always choose the half full point of view. Though I think in this case with the added feature of, its the thought that counts (minus the cash, transit pass and wallet). A bit of both maybe?

As the week passed I felt a happy outcome was not to be this time. I was WRONG and couldn't be happier about it. The missing boy was found.




And Found




What a great way to end the week!

A high speed head on, often ends as a statistic. Score this, as one for the 'Good News Thread'. If you ever wondered if a long past first aid course of any kind you took was worth it. The answer is you just never know.
