Tumblr provides context to the story of a formerly anti-vaxx mom who changed her mind after realizing that she was wrong.

The warning signs here are doing a great job. Like if you find yourself about to swim and then notice a little ol' ENORMOUS SIGN in all caps that says "THIS RIVER IS CONTAMINATED WITH FECAL BACTERIA" you may find yourself a little dissuaded from jumping in.

Justas Gedvilas, in the YouTube comments section for this video said it right: for having skin as delicate as a butterfly wing, the kid is tough as steel. Seriously. What a little badass! He's incredibly well spoken, and is a bright and courageous example of the amazing power of one's will, in the face of stunning adversity, and challenges. We've seen this kind of VR chat format video before, when a kid was describing what it's like living with ADHD; and we loved it! Check that one out here, if you're curious.
