Florence: You are so right, there is too much hate running around on the internet these days. Why can't people just be supportive when people actually try to make something of themselves, even if they did not have the best starting blocks. He is an amazing guy and I wish him all the best.

I am so glad to see him get out and do something he enjoys doing rather than stewing on "what could be" and "what is". Good for you, Keenan! You are a true inspiration to myself. You made me realize that my common disability is nothing worth stopping my life over, and to reach higher. I should not have spent so much time being upset, and should have been doing something better for myself. Keep up the amazing work. You have many people admiring you for how strong and truly talented you are!

Why do so many people like him ? All he's doing is lip syncing and pretty horribly at that. Just because he has a rare disorder, doesn't mean he deserves that much fame. If anyone without a disorder/disability did that, they would get no more than 600 views, two-thirds of which would be from friends and families. I'm not hating, just wondering: WHY !?! You may say what you want about me, but I am entitled to my opinion.
