TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Inspiration is sweeping social media sites in the form of a 2-year-old amputee’s newly viral video.

The heartwarming clip shows a little boy named Kayden Elijah Kinckle who, after losing his right leg and left foot in January, is learning to walk using prosthetics and a walker.

Though he wobbles a bit, the video shows Kayden smiling as he chants, “I got it!” with every step.

The boy’s mom, Nikkie Kinko Sessoms, posted the video on July 4th along with his story.

She said Kayden was born with a birth defect called Omphalocele, and that doctors predicted he wouldn’t survive.

Despite what they said, Kayden’s unbeatable determination and persistent positivity prove he can’t be stopped.

The family has a GoFundMe page set up so Kayden can keep up with the medical treatment he needs to stay strong.

    Public officials and safety advocates worry there will be more drivers high on pot and a big increase in traffic deaths as states liberalize marijuana laws. It's not clear, though, whether those concerns are merited. Researchers are divided on the question. Studies of marijuana's effects show the drug can slow decision-making, decrease peripheral vision and impede multitasking.
