Meet Kait, a 16-year-old girl from Grand Rapids, MI. You've probably never met her, but chances are good you won't forget her after seeing this video.

Kait's "secret" is that her mom committed suicide just weeks ago. But rather than falling down a rabbit hole of sadness and despair, the young lady is using the tragedy to educate and enlighten others about depression -- while at the same time giving an absolutely lovely tribute to her mother.

Kait? For what it's worth -- we're betting that yes, you are the strongest person your friends know.
