Christopher Duffley was born prematurely, weighing less than two pounds at birth and rendered blind right from the beginning of his life — but that hasn't stopped him from being an incredible example of inspiration!

On Monday, he was on hand at the MLB game between the Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Indians at historic Fenway Park to deliver the National Anthem… and did he ever!!

The 14-year-old is no stranger to performing the anthem in front of people. He's apparently been at Fenway Park twice before, as well as performances at NASCAR races and elsewhere, so this was a breeze for him — but that didn't make it any less awesome!!

Ch-ch-check out Duffley go all in on the Star Spangled Banner (below) and even work through a microphone malfunction, because he's pretty much a badass:

Only two states — Mississippi and West Virginia — are this strict in enforcing that no child is immune to the immunization process.

Carrey took to Twitter to warn his followers about the dangerous bill, and the dangers of injecting thimerosal, writing:

Pedro Flores had his 11th birthday party over the weekend… the only problem was that just one of his classmates showed up to celebrate.

When Pedro's sister Edith saw that her little brother only had one friend attend, she took to social media to get the word out that she needed help.

Luckily, people from all across the Oxnard, CA community came out to support the 11-year-old with Autism.
