Must Watch Video: The Amazing Sam Berns

I came across this TED Talk by Sam Berns today as I was scrolling through my RSS feed.  Sam is an amazing young man from Foxboro, MA who passed away earlier this month from Progeria  at the age of 17.

The video below was from a TED Talk Sam did back in October. The title for Sam’s Talk was “My philosophy for a happy life.” You simply need to take 13 minutes to watch Sam’s words of wisdom and then share them with someone else.   (I’ve added another clip of Sam below from his HBO film Life According to Sam).
