For four-year-old Kenydii Parker, being able to walk seemed like a distant dream. But last month, the sweet preschooler took her first steps thanks to a new walker.

And she couldn't look happier!

Kenydii's aunt, Yvette Parker, captured the moment in a video and posted it to Facebook. The video has gone viral, with thousands of comments and hundreds of thousands of shares.

Yvette captioned the video saying,

"Today starts Day 2 come on my luv you got this#Never say never#GOD has the last word🙏🏾🙏🏾This is truly the happiest day of her life💯❤️#Spina Bifida"

As the young girl walks, her classmates can be seen and heard cheering her on in the back. Kenydii's infectious smile is wide on her face as she takes those first steps.

Kenydii was born with spina bifida, a condition where the spine and spinal cord don't properly form in. Because of this condition, she's had to rely on a wheelchair to get around.

But seeing her walk is absolutely stunning.

Kenydii's parents, Kenneth and Terry, found out she had spina bifida while Terry was still pregnant. Despite this, Kenydii has a bright and fun personality.

Spina bifida's incomplete closing of the vertebrae can lead to leg weakness, paralysis and orthopedic abnormalities, among other physical symptoms. The condition is one of the most common birth defects worldwide, though lower rates are observed in the United States.

Watching Kenydii move is enough to make you cry!

In an interview with People Magazine Kenneth said,

"The first time I saw the video, I was at work. It broke me down because everyone was cheering her on. Seeing her accomplish her main goal was a beautiful thing."

Kenydii's parents run an Instagram account for her to continue sharing her story. They often post photos and videos of the young girl practicing with her braces and walker.

And she's getting good!

I'd say "congratulations" are in order.

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

We learned a lot more about things that are considered normal in other countries after Redditor monitonik asked the online community,

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
