This 17 year old died on Monday but what he left is inspirational

It’s your morning cry, and it’ll make you think about how you’re living your life.

ZACH SOBIECH WAS 14 when he started getting pains in his hip.  Soon after that he was diagnosed with a rare form of terminal cancer.

A musician, he chose to write songs about his feelings about his life and his future, one of which was  Clouds.  His friends’ aim was for the inspirational song about facing death to hit a million views before he died.

Celebrities got wind of it, and made a video of themselves singing along to the song.  It has 1.25 million views.

His own video currently stands at just under 3.7 million views.
