It Gets Better

Filed in Workplace Rights by on November 30, 2010 1 Comment

I’m an optimist—always have been.  I believe in the promise and power of “tomorrow”, and that our best days are always ahead of us.  So I was honored to join more than two dozen of my Labor Department LGBT colleagues and record a special message to young people as part of the “It Gets Better” project.

We’ve been hearing a lot lately about young people who have been bullied to the point of suicide. This is a tragedy.  We don’t have a person to lose.  Every young person should look to the future with possibility and excitement.  So our  message in the video is simple: You matter, and the future has great things in store for you.

The video speaks for itself. I was so proud of my colleagues standing with me.  Please help get the word out.

    Its the small things that matter. Non judgmental acceptance, acknowledgement, equanimity and letting things be with compassion and improved understanding and respect. Be present, mindfull, and embrace the fears; learn to live with and overcome diversity with wizdom and focus.
