My friend Jessi shared this today on Facebook and at first I was like, “Oh. This video is over 7 minutes long. I don’t have time to watch that.” But it had already started playing and just like that, I found myself making the time to watch it to the end and I am so glad that I did. This video is amazing. This man is an inspiration.
School was fucked up when I was a kid, but it is so much worse now — I worry all the time, is Chooch going to get shot at? is Chooch going to get bullied? is Chooch going to BULLY? We talk about that subject all of the time, and I always make him stop what he’s doing when anti-bullying commercials come on TV. There are things that were said to me when I was a kid that have become some ugly, fucked up accessory that I feel like I almost flaunt to a fault. I could weigh 100 pounds and still find fat that I want to cleave off. But most of it came from home. I will take this fucking inferiority complex to the grave, but I’ll be damned if my son is going to have one and I’ll be doubly-damned if my kid’s going to give some other kid one.
You should definitely make the time to watch this. And pass it on. It’s fucking beautiful.
