The broadcasting team at Liberty Middle School in Madison, Alabama, is currently rocking my world. They put together this incredibly simple, yet incredibly powerful video called "I'm Human." The video features students , faculty, and staf standing against a wall, each holding up a sign that tells you how they're different. One is Christian, one is spoiled. Another is Mexican, and one girl has lost a friend — all of this in the first forty-eight seconds. The full video is around nine minutes, and it's worth watching every single one of them. The video's after the jump! Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here.

Loved it…. and I saw my coworkers daughter in there 🙂 Reply SIIIGH.. I think that's the difference between technology 10 years ago and now. TEN YEARS AGO. Reply This was from a middle school? Wow that is amazing! I applaud them so much for their work. Reply YES! Liberty is grades 6-9, I think. Reply Shows how incredibly differently people develop. If I met some of the students I'd guess they were in their 20's, others look much younger than they are. Great video, wonderful project. I wonder how the classmates react to knowing each other's secrets? Reply I was doing pretty well until I got to the little boy with the "I'm afraid no one will be my friend" sign. Gut punch. Cue the weepies. This is really, really good. Reply the "i am full of possibilities" girl got me for some reason Reply Yes! I wanted to shout "I'll be your friend!!" Reply Just amazing. I teared up at a few of them. Wow. Reply weepy weepy weepy. i am going to show this to my 10 year old… Reply I laughed at the "I'm Lazy" one. Reply This is amazing! definitely gave me a case of the weepies though Reply Reminded me of this video: Reply I watched this on mute, because I'm at work, and it was really powerful silent; am looking forward to watching it with sound when I get home. For some reason, the boy with "I'm Sorry" got to me. Reply Me too! The "I'm Sorry" was just so… it was a powerful moment, for sure. Reply Y'all are not supposed to make me cry right after I put makeup on! What a powerful movie. Reply The "I'm bullied" made me just….ugh. wow. I see these kids everyday when I teach theatre. I wish I could show everyone this video, especially the ones who bully. Reply Man! This reminded me of junior high *cringe* I just wanted to hug everyone in the video! Reply This was pretty rockin'! Anyone who reads Korean who can tell me what the sign in Korean said? Reply Yep, crying a bit at work. This is so awesome, and I am seriously impressed that junior high kids put it together. Reply Am I old? I could barely tell some of the teachers from the students! Reply And now I'm bawling – for me it was the 'I'm just happy' girl – she was great. I also laughed lots – I loved the lazy man, the bald man and the man with the perfect handwriting (he looked so proud of himself!).
