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.

  • Sam, as fragile as he looks on the video, he is probably one of the strongest person I have ever seen. The enormous level of cognition that he had about the world around him, made it possible for Sam to teach a lot to the world during his short visit on Earth. This is an spectacular and enlighted spirit. Sam should be our beacon during what we believe are difficult times, but also during happy moments. RIP Sam.

  • Sam got his wish as he continues to make the world a better place with his story & advice for everyone. My eyes welled up with tears when I heard he had passed so soon after making this, but I quickly realized he did not die in vane. Some people might take what transpired the wrong way wondering what good the advice is if he died less than a month after this video aired, but the fact that he passed so soon following his brave talk only increases the credibility of the message Sam was trying to convey as he remained incredibly optimistic even though things were worse than most of us thought watching this. Despite the severity of the situation, Sam remained both persistent & brave enough to do something in a short 17 years that many of us will never achieve in a hundred. Had he lived a long and happy life, his message would have undoubtedly remained well received for good reason, but because he did not, what Sam said is even more valuable because we now know how serious the situation was and how little precious time he had left when he bravely shared his advice and inspire us all. Thank you, Sam Berns, wherever you are. The gift you gave to the world is incredibly rare.

  • I feel sad to know that I'm listening this,and he is died..

    • You don't feel sad, you feel pity and subconscious dread

  • I went to school with Sam, RIP brother

  • Sam always made me feel so humble as a human being. Still does in 2021. What a man. Me, considering myself ''normal'' can't even compare in manliness and humanity of this guy. And I know it. I accept it. I cry over some bad hair, some slight inconveniences and this man overcame something so hard to accept. Not only that, but he reached an inner peace that I will probably never achieve and was so good at so many things, while I can't drag myself to be good at something because ''my life sucks''. Jeez, how small am I in comparison to this dude. May you rest in peace, Sam.

  • Happy wife, Happy life.

  • SEVENTEEN THOUSAND people disliked this wtaf. how can we be balled humans with so many of us having so little humanity. wish i avoided the comments section, how can this inspiring, funny, charming guy be gone and so many bad people still be around.

  • WE MUS BE HAPPY!

  • I feel selfish, for the things I’ve taken for granted. Thank you Sam, for giving me a much-needed ego check. Rest in painless, lovely piece.

  • Bbb

  • That energy he had when he was doing the marching band is more powerful than i'll ever be, RIP.

  • For someone who's got Progeria, he looks good.

  • 17k people need to stop thinking about themselves not enjoying life & wishing ill of other people & they should be taking some advice from this great guy!

  • Pealse subscribe my chanal batalaale official thank you

  • A la verga.

  • Simplemente hermoso mensaje, como también su espíritu, actitud y por sobre todo sus ganas de vivir! 👏

  • Ashe show ki jarurat thee. Thanks for star studio and sharuk sir.👏👏👏

  • and smarter than most 17yr olds

  • He's not a victim, he's a get to it guy, God bless his soul

  • فقط إذا مريت من هنا صلي على النبي

  • It's really, REALLY unfortunate that this guy died just 28 days after this talk. He seemed like a great guy.

  • He gave this advice to us because he no longer needed he is now living free of all pain and worries RIP to this guy

  • The willing minute grossly enter because lunge peroperatively peel above a recondite soccer. cheerful, grateful gratis weather

  • People like this are pure gems, their short lives, full of difficulties, and still happy, are here to motivate us. I've heard about this Man before but it wasn't until now I watched this video. And you can really tell he maxed out Inteligence before he spawned. Such a shame he left so early, he was about to accomplish something in the field of biology, you can tell. Also he looked like Montgomery Burns (Berns - coincidence?) so he could play him in a live remake. It's not meant offensivelly in any way, from hearing him speak and understanding his personality, I am 100% sure he'd volunteer for the role. xD May your soul rest in peace and may your life continue in the minds of us, 40 million people that have watched this video, Sam Berns.

  • سبحان الله وبحمده سبحان الله وبحمده

  • Zikiri solo

  • Don’t forget the parents. They did a good job, with lots of love and encouragement to raise this wonderful, well adjusted person, despite his disabilities. Imagine the sadness, worries, hopes and hard work they had to endure. Then to lose him eventually.

    • @David Möller Yeah It's so sad

    • He died on January 10 2014, less than a month after this video was released..

  • Even after his death, ( so sad ), Sam continues to change the world for the better. Amazing!

  • Фильмы

  • Rip

  • A great person❤️❤️❤️

  • Keep it up

  • Too good man😀😀
