It Gets Better

Please check out these videos from ACLU staffers done in conjunction with Dan Savage's "It Gets Better Project."  Savage talks about the impetus behind this project, the suicide of a 15-year old kid in Indiana who'd been tormented by his peers, in his column on September 23, 2010.

I think that not only do we have to tell kids it gets better, but we need to make sure there are local places where they can find support while they're growing up.  Sometimes it's hard to believe things will get better when you feel like you can't survive another day.  Maybe we can give them another day, and then another, and then another, until it genuinely gets better.
