“You don’t have to find out you’re dying to start living.”
I just spent 22 minutes sobbing in my bed watching this amazing, inspirational and heartbreaking documentary about Zach Sobiech. This young legend was diagnosed with a rare form of terminal cancer at age 14, and he passed away yesterday, May 20th, 2013. The sweet and genuine love he exudes for his beloved family and girlfriend is heartwarming. His courage and poise is off the charts.
He became an internet phenomenon when he posted the beautiful song Clouds to YouTube in December 2012 (well over three million views). His song not only inspired millions of people, but a long list of celebrities to make their own tribute, (staring Sarah Silverman, Jason Mraz, and the Lumineers to name a few).
Here’s the 22 minute story of his life. Warning: keep a box of tissues close by.
Here’s his original music video, Clouds.
And here’s the celebrity rendition of Clouds.
