We really need to have more people like Joel to stand up and do just what he did. We need to stop the harassment that kids & adults are doing.
Enough is enough don't you think?
I received an email yesterday while I was at work. It said
"I just came across your post about Joel Burns’ inspirational speech to gay teens. I think it is really great that someone in public light had the courage to stand up and reach out to these victims of anti-gay bullying. As you said, we need more people (kids and adults!) to stop the harassment. Viral videos are always entertaining, but I am glad that a video with a message is floating around the Internet. "She also gave me a link to this video and I decided to post it here as well.
The video takes a look at how different news organizations are covering the issue. For example, a featured HLN segment points out that Burns’ speech should “prompt the world to do some self-reflection.”
Thanks Ileana for the news video and the email.
