People who really really really need to do an ‘It Gets Better’ video.

Standard

First, author/columnist Dan Savage must be commended for creating the It Gets Better Project.  He didn’t stand by feeling powerless and impotent about bigotry, bullying and  teen suicide.  His use of social media, technology & the personal narrative to connect with children who are living with bullies AND those of us who might pretend being bullied is a sign of emotional health is brilliant and life-affirming.

BD Wong:

The outpouring of support for the It Gets Better Project is a reminder that, regardless of who we love, we are all human and deserving of respect. What a simple concept.

So I’m using this blog to ask Sarah Palin, John Boehner, Lindsay Graham, Mitch McConnell to do their own It Gets Better videos.  As  mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, uncles, aunts and friends, why wouldn’t they embrace this supportive, humane project?

Why not have these mature, humane and generous adults support a project that nurtures children to be confident and emotionally secure?

Britain’s MP Prime Minister David Cameron did an It Gets Better video — so why not the aforementioned?
