Back in October, 2010 I posted Joel Burns' Message of Hope, a message letting gay teens know that life gets better and urging them to hang in there and find out. I didn't realize that his message had spawned a movement of similar messages called the It Gets Better Project, but what an amazing thing. I guess we could lament, and curse a crummy world where people are bullied to such extremes that suicide seems to be the only solution, but instead, it seems an easier choice to celebrate a world where people look out for one another, and take a moment to remind each other that it does, in fact, get better...and that you are a beautiful person.
Bravo to the brave voices who share their stories with the world and more importantly our children.
Be sure to check out The Trevor Project for more information.

Isn't this enough?
Just this world?
Just this beautiful, complex
Wonderfully unfathomable world?
How does it so fail to hold our attention
That we have to diminish it with the invention
Of cheap, man-made Myths and Monsters?
-Tim Minchin "Storm"
It's a ten minute trip worth taking...
