For those of you that may not know, today is Spirit Day! Today gays, lesbians and the people who love them proudly wore purple. This was done to show support for victims of bullying. As many of us know the bullying of gay youth in America has reached a boiling point. It really wasn’t until recently that this epidemic came to light. It makes me happy to know that an anti-bullying dialogue has opened and if these discussions save even one young life – we’ve made a difference.
Below is a video I wanted to share with you all in honor of this day. It is a speech given by Fort Worth City Councilman; Joel Burns letting the victims of bullying know that if they can just hang in there, things do get better.
