Getting Better all the Time

In the last few days, I've been learning a lot about this extremely new movement. It all started with this video about Pixar that my sister came across on cartoonbrew.com, a site she recently blogged about. This led me to discover more videos that all carried the same incredible message: It does get better.

Only started in September of this year, Dan Savage started the It Gets Better Project to give LGBT teenagers hope that their future is bright, even if it doesn't seem that way right now. Hundreds of people from all over the country, gay and straight, have made these inspiring videos, and all kinds of celebrities and organizations have endorsed this project as well.

One of my best friends happens to be gay, so this site has really hit home for me. It breaks my heart to think about all the young kids out there, trying to come to terms with their sexuality while being bullied and teased at school, and in some cases even at home. !,! These teens need love and acceptance, not hate and prejudice! So what if they're a bit different? It's what makes them special. These unique, interesting, beautiful people deserve to pursue their happiness as much as we do.

History is being made with this project. It excites me to think that I can be a small part of it. ^_^ I whole-heartedly support the It Gets Better Project, and hope that you will help to spread the word too. In a way, this doesn't only apply to LGBTs, but to all people who feel lost and alone, just because they are different. Don't give up hope, my friend. It won't always be like this. Just keep on dreaming, be yourself, and remember...

It's Getting Better All The Time. ^_~

It's the last day of November now. ~,~ It sure was a good month...

But tomorrow's the first night of Chanukah! Hurray! Plus my brother Adam's 13th birthday is on the 10th, and his Bar Mitzvah is on the 11th! Double yay! ^_^

Wow, 2010 is almost coming to an end. *sad*... But it's okay, because it has been such a wonderfully awesome year! If anything, this year has proven to me, beyond a doubt, that it is getting better all the time. I don't know how on earth I'm going to top it... but I'm sure 2011 will find a way. ^_^
Edit: How about tonight's Glee episode, huh?! This show honestly just gets better and better!!! LOL!
