Music Within (2007) was a true story of Richard Pimentel, a disability rights activist who came out with training materials to assist employers in hiring disabled people into the workplace. the story started out with Richard being a young man. he had a remarkable gift for public speaking. despite her admiration towards Dr. Padrow, he was informed that he didn't have anything to talk about until he lived a fuller life. he enlisted himself in the military and was sent to Vietnam. he lost his hearing on the battlefield. he returned frustrated, in fear of never achieving his dreams for being deaf.
the story had great drama, while being informative, it was also hilarious. the friendship developed between 2 unlikely characters was simply incredible. despite both being stubborn, their determination can truly make a difference in life. watching Richard struggling for his dream was highly motivating. it reminded us of the prejudices often threw automatically at the disabled.
