    Interesting fact – the producer is listed as Zlata Filipovic, the author of Zlata’s Diary (she’s been living in Ireland for years now)

    This is so beautiful <3

    reminded me a little of this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBuKuA9nHsw , though the message in this Irish anti bullying video is way clearer and more heart-warming

    this means i´m talented at saying exactly the same thing as other people or SUPERPSICHIC.
