  Original Published: 9/29/2013 By showing how he's overcoming his disability, a musician says he's proving nothing is impossible. Lori Wallace explains how a young man who was born without arms became a guitar player and motivational speaker. When you watch George Dennehy play his guitar, it is effortless, but also a surprise. Look closer, the guitar is being played with his feet. "I was borh in Romania and I was borth without arms," he says. Getting to this point was a struggle, rejected by his village in Romania at birth, and his family sacrificing their love in hopes he would have a better life. "There's a superstition that when a baby's not born perfect or completely healthy that they were believed to be cursed by God," he says. After a year-and-a-half reglected in an orphanage, he was adopted. Life got better, and at eight-years-old, everything changed. "My mom signed me up for music lessons, and I started playing the cello," he says. "Then, when I got to be in middle school and high school, I started picking up the guitar and the bass guitar." After years of feeling sorry for himself, he had a different perspective. "Every life has a purpose and God created everyone for a reason," he says. Now, music is what keeps his head up. "Music's the only thing I really think I'm okay at," he says. "I'm not really good at anything else, so it's just what I do." Accoustic and emotional, music that speaks to people. George is traveling the world, sharing his story and perspective that changed his life. "I like to go around and tell people that anything's possible," he says. "And I don't ever want to hear the words, 'I can't' or 'this is too hard,' 'cause anything's possible."
