Hillary Clinton: "It Gets Better"

Hillary Clinton is joining in with "It Gets Better" to send out ads to encourage GLBT youth that things are going to get better, and to not commit suicide.  There have been a rash of teenaged suicides after cyberbullying, bullying, and mistreatments stemming from sexual orientation. 

Tyler Clementi is the most recent victim.  He committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge after his roommate streamed a live video of him in a relationship with a man. 

Kids are so mean, and with more and more youth being openly gay, they open themselves up for a lot of ridicule. Below is the public service message from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, urging gay and lesbian youth that "It Gets Better." 

And hey - if you're out there and you feel alone, don't. There are millions of people out there who would be utterly devastated if something happened to you.
