This viral clip of a little boy dancing on his new prosthetic leg is simply joyous
It’s heartbreaking that so many lives have been and are being lost due to the fighting in Afghanistan, with a whole generation growing up orphaned and/or with terrible injuries requiring surgery and, often, prosthetics.

Vow,and sometimes we forget the real problems of real people dealing with them on a daily basis. Nothing compares to this happiness and suffering too. So happy for the young man. Bless him and may he stay happy forever.
