This Kid Just Died. What He Left Behind Is Wondtacular

At the Age of 14, Zach Sobiech found out he had a rare form of terminal cancer.

After Chemo, they told him that he could live if they cut off parts of his body, and he would no longer be able to walk or live as before.

Zach decided to opt out of the surgery for a better option : live his last days to the fullest, with his familly and friends.

He also decided to leave as much as he could behind as a reminder to everyone that you didn’t have to be diagnosed with cancer to live your life to the fullest!

Following the advice of his familly, he started writing a few songs, one of which was Youtube sensation “Cloud” (the 2 versions are at the end of this article).

His song was uploaded to Youtube and got millions of hit, much to the surprise of Zach.

Unfortunately the disease cought up with him on May 20th 2013 just 2 days ago, but even though he’s gone, he left all he could behind.

In this 22 minute documentary, you see how Zach dealed with his cancer, why he chose not to have surgery, and just what a good guy he was.

The video is more than emotional, and despite its length, you can’t stop watching it until you reach the end!

You didn’t lose your fight Zach! Rest in Peace

What schools don’t teach

What is “The closest thing we have to a superpower”?

Here’s a hint : We can all learn how to do it and both Facebook and Microsoft have it in common.

If you haven’t found the answer yet, I’ll give it to you at the end of this article.

Don’t get me wrong, schools teach you a lot, and without schools, we would all be working as soon as our arms could carry us.

Few people could read or write, and even less would know about what’s happening on the other side of the world.

But schools also have to adapt to modern times every now and then by adding a few classes to their courses.

The aim of this video isn’t to tell you to stop going to school, it’s aim is to remind us to keep our minds open and continue learning for ourselves on our own free time.

Entrepreneurs going from the creator of Microsoft, Twitter, Facebook or even Dropbox have at least one thing in common : they are experts in coding.

What a lot of people don’t know is that coding isn’t only for engineers, basic coding is easy, and can be compared to learning a new sport or musical instrument.

Even “WILLIAM” admits that coding needs to be taught to more people.

As you may have already guessed, the “superpower” I mentionned at the begining of this article is indeed coding.

With already over 2 million hits in just a few days, let’s watch what the people in this video made by Code.org think about it :

So what do you think?
