It Gets Better
President Obama added his video of support last week to the thousands already submitted to the It Gets Better Project. "President Obama is committed to ending bullying, harassment and discrimination in all its forms in our schools and communities," writes Deputy Director of the Office of Public Engagement Brian Bong on the White House Blog. "That's why he recorded this message."
We've got to dispel this myth that bullying is just a normal rite of passage, that it's some inevitable part of growing up. It's not. We have an obligation to ensure that our schools are safe for all of our kids.
And, to every young person out there, you need to know that if you're in trouble, there are caring adults who can help.
