Every year, nearly 185,000 amputations occur in America.
Whether it's a finger or an arm, amputation can be a frightening experience. But that hasn't stopped people like Mark, the musician in the video above, from pursuing their dreams and succeeding in life.
Mark isn't alone, of course. Although this video, uploaded by Facebook user Tay Glass, has reached over 6 million people, it wouldn't make Mark the most well-known amputee in the world.
Jerry Garcia lost a finger and still became one of the world's greatest guitarists. Bethany Hamilton lost her arm in a shark attack but continued her professional surfing career. Rick Allen lost his arm in a street racing accident, but continued to perform as the drummer for Def Leppard.
Let these resilient men and women be an inspiration, and, most of all, enjoy what they keep giving to the world.
