9-Year-Old Has More Wisdom In His 'Star Wars' PJs Than I Will In A Lifetime

[There is a little swearing, so this may not be suitable for work.]

Via Adam Mordecai at Upworthy:

Shane Koyczan, who just gave an amazing TED talk about bullying that you need to see, once spent some time in the hospital with an amazing nine-year-old kid dying of cancer. This is his amazing story.

At 1:47, we learn about a really weird girl. At 2:13, he shares a heartbreaking confession. At 2:40, he talks about why he wants to teach the kid to swear. At 3:53, he gets deeper than I want to be. At 4:40, he lays why a nine-year-old kid is more profound than any philosopher. And at 5:45, he just goes ahead and rips my heart out.
