  • Never miss a talk! SUBSCRIBE to the TEDx channel: http://bit.ly/1FAg8hB​ Just before his passing on January 10, 2014, Sam Berns was a Junior at Foxboro High School in Foxboro, Massachusetts, where he achieved highest honors and was a percussion section leader in the high school marching band. He also achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America. Sam was diagnosed with Progeria, a rare, rapid aging disease, at the age of 2. He is featured in the Emmy award-winning documentary Life According to Sam, which premiered on HBO on October 21, 2013, 2 days before his 17th birthday. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    This Man is a Beautiful creation of this human race. He is obviously so much older in intelligence then 17. This is absolutly the best story I have heard in a long time

    I am amazed by his intelligence. He died less than a month after this. RIP

    At the age of 17, this person shows more maturity than most adults on this planet.

    “Being brave isn’t supposed to be easy” a true hero. Rest In Peace. You’ve made me better and I’m truly thankful for that.

    Finding out that he died a month after this speech is so depressing after hearing his dreams.

    omg. the points where it seemed like his voice is breaking and he’s struggling to talk almost had me crying.

    This is absolutely phenomenal and worth the time to watch, so inspiring.  "Be OK with what you ultimately can't do, because there is so much you CAN do"

    As a 31 year old man I don't find I cry very often but 30 seconds in I felt the first tear stream down my face and I've been crying the entire video. This kid is more of an inspiration than most folks and he is the type of human I aspire to be. Well done may you rest in peace my guy.
