Ok - how many of you watch America's Got Talent?
I normally don't write anything about the shows. I am sure you might have heard about Connor Doran. He is an older boy who suffers from epilepsy.
The first time I saw his act I watched his interview and thought "Oh I hope he doesn't fail". For some reason, I wanted him to be good. Usually I like to watch for the train wreck acts (I know that isn't nice.)
The whole time during his act I was mesmerized. I got goosebumps, seriously. Maybe because it was just so in sync with the music, because he suffers from something my son has - I don't know, but it was good.
He was sent home earlier in the show, but was brought back this week in the "wildcard week" and he was picked to go on. This time I got the goosebumps again, and tears in my eyes. He said in his interview that flying makes him feel like he can do anything. He can do what "normal" kids do.
Now we probably won't win, but he has a talent beyond kite flying.....its called giving other kids with epilepsy -HOPE. And to me that makes him a winner already.
