10 Yr old cries when she hears herself breath - for the first time

Want to lift your spirits and maybe shed a couple of tears? Watch this video.

Sammie Hicks went deaf as a toddler due to a genetic mutation in her ears and has been wearing hearing aids all her life. Last month she had a Cochlear Device implanted, which was turned on earlier this month.

Her family just happened to have recorded that event.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/WAd7IGqcX-U&amp;rel=0&amp;fs=1" target="_blank" style="background:url(images/midnight/jump.gif) no-repeat right bottom;padding-right:13px;">http://www.youtube.com/v/WAd7IGqcX-U&amp;rel=0&amp;fs=1</a>

Her 8 year old brother is also deaf, and will soon be getting his implant as well.

In the hopes of inspiring others, little Sammie also kept a video diary to document the process, which you can find HERE

Nobody changes until the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of change....

A guilty conscience can be more cruel a judge than any court of law. In the end its not how many toys we had, and all that we ever were are the impressions we left on those we leave behind, so live your life as you'd want to be remembered when you're gone!
