    I posted that in the sexting-bullying thread last week

    I dare anyone to watch it and have dry eyes....the guy really sums it up, not just for kids who are struggling with their sexuality, but ANY kid who is struggling with making the transition to adult hood...or frankly, any adult who is struggling

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Thank you for posting this.

    The fact that in today's world this speech still needs to be given is pathetic and downright sad.

    Kudos to Joel Burns for his courage and his message.

    True, this is the kind of courage the world needs today.

    Burns is spot-on with this message and I think it goes far beyond being gay. When I was in college there was a student, a stranger to me, that hung herself on campus. I still think about that incident once and a while as I reside near the campus and pass by the spot where she killed herself frequently. I don't know if she was harrassed, bullied, had drug issues or anything. I can't help but think her life could have improved a great deal through all of these years if she could have just gutted it out. I'm not passing judgement. It's just sad.
