This story really blew me away. Hats off to all pianists and music lovers. While Rep. Giffords is from Arizona, her husband/astronaut Mark Kelly lives in my neighborhood (League City). From today's Houston Chronicle.... "Giffords, who lives in Tucson, Ariz., but has been in Houston for much of her daughter's rehab, wrote that it was music therapy that "really flipped the switch." She mouthed Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and I Can't Give You Anything But Love as friends provided keyboards and chorus. She also lip-synced Happy Birthday to You in a videotape for her husband, League City astronaut Mark Kelly. Giffords wrote that they were planning to do Deep in the Heart of Texas next."

Wonderful story. All too often we get caught up in extraneous stuff, and forget the power of a simple melody.

Thanks for sharing. smile
