A Cure for the Awkwardness of Middle School

A Cure for the Awkwardness of Middle School

Did you ever feel awkward in middle school or junior high? Do you know a kid who feels different or alone? The students of Liberty Middle School in Madison, Alabama have the cure.

Using only music, placards, and messages from their hearts, they created this moving short video called "I'm Human." In it they reveal both their incredible diversity... and what we all have in common. There are moments that will make you cry ("I lost my father") and others that will make you smile ("I'm short").
