YouTube Can Be Awesome -- Meet LIZZIE VELASQUEZ

There's alot of crap on the internet. More negative than positive...then you come across something that makes you believe there is good in people and good hearted people. Sometimes you come across someone who pulls your heart strings. Someone who makes you believe.

I found Lizzie Velasquez randomly through another video I was watching and came across this video:

Lizzie Velasquez is  25 year old who suffers from a rare condition that only two other people have suffered from. She has 0 body fat and has never weighed more than 64 Lbs. She is unable to gain weight and must have small meals and snacks throughout the days just to get through. She's been bullied her entire life because of her appearance and has suffered so much from the hatred and the meanness of this world. 

Watching this video your heart breaks for her. She seems to have her share of good days and tough days but she keeps her positive attitude.

Her story has been become an inspiration to people who believe in oneself inside to have inner beauty. She's turned her syndrome into a positive by become a public speaker. Her story is going to be made into a movie and you can see the happiness when she talks about it.

I guess the moral of her story is it doesn't matter what you look like. If you're a kind person the inner beauty will shine through.

Thanks Lizzie for inspiring me...
