that's pretty powerful... if the kid is acting... he's doing a bloody good job... but, as you say....the message is the main point.... and it goes on too much, sadly... always has, and always will.... seems to be a dark side of the nature of humans.... we hopefully, can try and lessen it though..
Some have suggested he was acting because there is another video where he is speaking about this clip and appears happy. He also says in the video that he has many friends in his school. No where did he confess to faking it though so I guess only he knows for sure. I still think the video is relevant regardless if he was just a super actor or not.
