3 Amazing Videos That Change The Way You Think


Smoking marijuana has its very funny stereotypes for a reason. We imagine one hand in a Cheetoh bag, being easily distracted and making nonsensical but hilarious jokes. Now imagine all of this behind the wheel of a car. Now put an innocent kid in the passenger seat. Is it funny or scary? Just like this commercial, it’s probably both.

This creative take on “drug driving” tranforms an old issue into a new “aha” moment about the truth and severity of putting passengers at risk.

Do yourself a favor and grab a box of tissues before pressing play. The relevance and significance of Charlie’s story is outstanding. Same-sex couple rights is a relatively new issue, but sometimes it feels like we’ve heard every side ten too many times to listen again. This story will change the way you view LGBT military members because no news anchor, politician or coffee shop conversation will ever be the same as hearing a military mother with breast cancer struggle to obtain healthcare justice.

Anthony is an eight-year-old with Asperger’s, a form of autism. He, along with many other Asperger’s patients, experiences stimming. Stimming is a repetitive body movement such as hand flapping — a behavior that can be hard to understand as a passerby.

What better way to understand autism than through the eyes of a kid actually experiencing it? Much more effective than the Wikipedia version, huh?

Excellent, educational videos. Often children can teach us more than adults.... As for same-sex marriage partners experiences.... I think many, many people don`t open their minds unless one of their close family members is in the same position....

Children see more than we think. Their brains are sponges.
Thank you for the informative videos.
My hopes are for the children in these videos to succeed in their aspirations, whatever they may be.

Thanks for the 2nd and 3rd videos.....they were quite poignant.
The first one....c'mon, give me a break!! These kids sound like their talking about driving with their 16 year old gang banger bro. Go pour yourself another and perhaps you can point out the excessive danger posed by drunk drivers without mentioning yourself.
