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.
