It Gets Better

I’m happy to hear that President Obama is participating in the It Gets Better Project, aimed at youth who are being bullied because they are gay or perceived as such.

In the video, Obama says “We’ve got to dispel this myth that bullying is just a normal rite of passage ... You’re not alone. You didn’t do anything wrong.”

Check out the video and send it around. The string of young people committing suicide in recent weeks is a travesty that never should have happened. Obama’s video clip might well save a life.

Support independent reporting on important issues.
