So you probably saw this video making the Facebook rounds the past few weeks and thought, “Wow, what a powerful message!” or “This is worth sharing!”.
I admit that I watched this video last night and as a father, I kinda felt for this kid’s story. I had my own experiences in middle school with bullies and others that I didn’t quite get along with – that was with minimal adversity. Thinking about my own daughter, I know it’s bound to happen in her lifetime too. As much as I want to protect her from the evil in the world, she has to learn about the dark side at a comfortable click to appreciate and cherish the good.
As a multimedia guru, I was impressed by the the kid’s video concept. The song fit well with the hand-written cards, appealing to the realness of the message. Never suspected it was lifted from another similar video.
As an internet user, I had my doubts to its authenticity. I hate to generalize, but most little dudes around the age of twelve are not that awesome.
Should you feel foolish that you wasted your time sharing and replying to this so-called “fake” original video? No. I’ll explain why.

In the last couple of days, Consumer Reports came out with a study where they tested juices and found unsafe levels of arsenic and lead. Yikes. Everyone’s been in on similar studies for the last couple months, including the FDA, who pushed back and saying that juice is safe. Consumer Reports then fired back and said that the FDA doesn’t test as much as they should.
The big stink: Consumer Reports tested 88 samples of apple and grape juice found in local grocery stores and found that 10% had arsenic levels that were higher than the US federal drinking-water standards! In addition, 25% of them also had levels of lead rating higher than the FDA’s own bottled-water limit. Burn.
So basically, it seems that juice right now is in the “iffy” category.
