This is a powerful appeal by Gabrielle Bouliane who performs for the audience at the Austin Poetry Slam. This was her last public performance.
Gabrielle was diagnosed with Stage Four Cancer shortly before this video was filmed. She died in January 29, 2010 surrounded by family and friends, and apparently her passing was in a very quiet, peaceful room full of love and affection.
This is one of the “better” viral videos as it contains a real message. Her message is simple: “Do not wait. If you don’t start today, get the fuck up walk out the door and change your life to the best it can be, then when?. Don’t you dare waste your fucking time.”
