Fearless Girl Belts Out Star-Spangled Banner At Baseball Game
You know why we are always excited about baby videos? Because it is always a thrill to see what these tiny humans have in store for us! You can never predict what they will do, and that is so exciting! Today, in the digital world, we can capture and record stuff to our heart’s content, but to little avail. Good thing we don’t have to keep those videos permanently, so we delete the stuff we do not like and try, try again.
It is always beautiful to see videos of little children acting in a brave manner. We love the way they tackle the struggles of the world with little to no fuss. They just know that worrying won’t help in any shape or form. Just look at this little girl in the video if you don’t believe us.
Fearless Olivia Towles refuses to let her cerebral palsy get in the way of her ambitions. The seven-year-old from Kentucky, USA, was video enthusiastically belting out the Star Spangled Banner in front of a appreciative baseball crowd.
Olivia, who finds it hard for her to walk and talk due to the muscular condition, fearlessly strides out onto the home plate - supported by her mom Courtney and big Brother Kingston - before giving her rousing rendition. She had been honoured with the opportunity to open the Lexington Legends’ South Atlantic League Playoff series after club officials heard about her singing at her school. Inspired by her spirit, they invited her down to open the game. And the jubilant crowd responded - giving her a huge standing ovation.
We can only imagine the daily struggles this little lady is going through but looking at her owning that stage, we realize that she is a great fighter. Nothing seems to phase her or make her back down. She is very happy to grace the world with the beauty of her voice. She is a real hero to many, showing them that only the sky is the limit.
Cerebral palsy, often abbreviated as only CP, is essentially a group of disorders that can occur in early childhood. All of these disorders affect the movement. Furthermore, they are grouped by the type of movement that is affected and can range from spastic cerebral palsy, ataxic cerebral palsy, athetoid cerebral palsy and others.
The reason behind the occurrence of cerebral palsy in children is still unknown but it is thought to occur during the pregnancy. The movement limitations are caused by an abnormal growth or damage to the part of the brain that controls the movement, balance and posture. Among the possible causes are an exposure to toxic materials such as mercury, infections like rubella, head trauma during birth, difficult birth in general.
