Welcome at the feast

Ho Hey! and a new line of fashion

And here we have another example of how perspective can have a significant effect on attitude — oh, and I’m talking about my perspective and my attitude, cause this little boy has it in the right place.  Do I even get close to this spirit of joy in the face of lesser afflictions and dilemmas? As Burroughs says,

“Certainly our contentment does not consist in getting the thing we desire, but in God’s fashioning our spirits to our conditions.”

Last June, Van Bernard performed the Lumineers’ tune “Ho Hey” with his music therapy teacher at the Walk for Muscular Dystrophy in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Now months later, the video starring the 6-year-old is going viral and touching hearts across the globe.

Van was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy Type 2 (SMA) when he was just 10 months old, the family’s fundraising page states. He is full of life and happiness despite the handicap that has had him in a wheelchair since he was 18 months old.

The family is currently fundraising to buy a new wheelchair van for their son now that they have “exhausted all possibilities for funding assistance.” The viral video might help get the Internet’s attention.

“We are blessed that he continues to thrive and grow into an intelligent, funny and always smiling little boy. But as he gets bigger so do our challenges,” his parents wrote on the fundraising page.
