I heard about the Its Gets Better Project from a commercial on television. I meant to go take a look then forgot about it. Thanks to Tracie Cope for reminding me (and posting) about this worthwhile project.
Read her post and then go by and visit the site where you can take the pledge:
THE PLEDGE: Everyone deserves to be respected for who they are. I pledge to spread this message to my friends, family and neighbors. I'll speak up against hate and intolerance whenever I see it, at school and at work. I'll provide hope for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and other bullied teens by letting them know that "It Gets Better."
The "It Gets Better Project" was created to show young LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender) people that that it (life) really does get better. It's especially difficult for the 9 out of 10 LGBT teens, who face bullying and daily tormenting in school, not to mention if their families are not accepting. There have been several recent cases in the news where individuals have taken their own life, because they didn't think it would get better.
This wonderful project currently has over 10,000 videos, many from celebrities and other well known people, including President Barack Obama. Every video has the potential to save a life, it could even be someone in your family. I have several LGBT in my family, including a sibling. I love my sister dearly and the world is definitely a better place with her in it.
My hope, in sharing this website, is that you will share it too. "Like" their Facebook page and share it with your friends, you might just save a life, it could even be someone you love.
