President Obama: It Gets Better

Day of Remembrance - It Gets Better



For every kid who ever got bullied for being too effeminate, too masculine, too fat, too skinny, too poor (or even too rich), too black, too white, too brown, too red, too yellow, too foreign, too trashy, too smart, too tall, too short, too quite….too different;  because bullying is more than hurting someone’s feelings;  because growing up is about learning to deal with the world; because too many kids are giving up, convinced it will never get better .



Today, October 20th, wear purple in remembrance of all the young people who were bullied so badly, and felt such little self-worth, that they took their own lives because they could not see how it could get better.



It Gets Better

I PLEDGE: On 9/11 I will not burn a Koran

I PLEDGE: On 9/11 I will not burn a Koran, I will think of peace and try to act peaceful, I will talk to people that look and think different from myself, my America is not full of hatred of differences but has room for all.



Sign it, share it, live it.
