So sad. I start to forget how much I should cherish each day and the wonderful people that surround me. I'm so blessed to only have minor problems and should remember that no matter what happens people have it worse than me.

The song is Mad World. It was originally sung by Tears for Fears but best known done by Gary Jules. It is used in lots of TV episodes. Adam Lambert also recorded a version of it.

I have never been faced by death and my faith in the lord hasn't been strong. My friend put this video on my facebook and I really didn't know why but I am glad she did. I also want to say thank you for sharing Ben story it gives me hope in my faith. My prayers are with you and the people that his life effected on. God bless you :) he seemed like a wonderful kid ♥.

Rebecca Evenbeck It doesn’t say anywhere in the bible in which we are given a certain amount of days. You don’t know where it’s at because it’s not in there. God did know when he was gonna die, but that doesn’t mean that God wanted him to die. Scripture says in 1 Peter 4 that it is not God's will that any perish, but that all come to repentance. We know people are perishing and that it's not God's will, so we know that God's will does not always come about. Next, you need to know that Paul’s thorn in the flesh was not an illness. The bible never said that it was. The reason why you think it was is because you pastor and friends told you it was. You won’t find in the bible. The word “thorn” had been used before in the Old Testament in the book of Ezekiel and it was regarding persecution, not illnesses. The thing is, you are taught by your church and other churches what you’re telling me right now. The thing is, it’s not what the bible teaches. The bible tells you to Heal the sick, but you sit back and think that God is going to randomly heal people, depending upon if He’s in a good mood that day. The thing is, miracles happen all over the world in Christianity, cancer, blind eyes, etc. But the problem is, we don’t see nearly as much miracles in the Christian Churches in the U.S. Something is wrong with the Christianity in the U.S. because it’s not looking the church found in the New Testament or the rest of the world. It just goes to show you that even bible school doesn’t make one a superior Christian. Most Christians in third world counties have no bible school, but they are living the life and seeing results of the Christians in the New Testament, while Christians in the west or America, see very few miracles and blessing.. American Christians need an overhaul..

Dear Kelly, I don't know if this will be of any help to you. I have a very close family member who is bipolar. Check out this article. I know there is truth to this for some people who suffer from bipolar disorder. I hope maybe it can help you also. Good luck to you. http://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelellsberg/2011/07/18/how-i-overcame-bipolar-ii/

Check out this song for some encouragement. Faith Hill-There Will Come A Day. Be blessed! :)

I am so glad go read this because I was thinking the same thing. I hope he is in heaven with God but there was no salvation mentioned there at all. The bible says the only way to get to heaven is to call upon the Lord and be saved..I hope he did.. Everything you said is true and the Lord thanks you for speaking out and so do I,,,,

This is a great encouragement to those people, who has lost their hope in Christ due to their circumstances.May God bless and give comfort to Ben's family.

Thank you for posting this. I'm not a cheater of death, but a seeker. I suffer from bipolar disorder and most of the time that means major depression. I've been hospitalized over a dozen times since I was thirteen, including once a few days ago. I wish I could say that I saw this video and am now healed" but I can't. I still have my disorder and there will still be days where I feel sad. But seeing this story - seeing somebody go through something like this and still be alive - it gives me the courage to get up and try again tomorrow, and that's enough for now. (Also, what song is that? I feel like I've heard it and it is driving me CRAZY.)

My thoughts and prayers are with Ben's family and friends. Rejoice that this young man was delivered to His Angels on the day Jesus' birth.
