Yesterday I heard Itzhak Perlman play with the Seattle Symphony. It was a thrill beyond measure. Besides being the finest violinist of our time, he is a role model for all of us polio survivors who struggle with the physical disabilities that this disease causes. For that matter, he is a shining example for anyone with a handicap of any kind.
Many times, I’ve heard the expression that a performer electrified the audience. Yesterday, Mr. Perlman truly accomplished that. He also provided me with inspiration not to let physical problems prevent me from utilizing my talents to the best of my ability.
Bravo, Mr. Perlman! And thank you.
