It Gets Better

Shares

As a high school teacher, I don’t want any of my students to feel like they need to wait to feel free of harassment, bullying, or the threat of violence, but the reality is that many kids feel an incredible sense of despair when they are mistreated in schools.

That’s why Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project is such a great idea. Kids, struggling with families, friends, and institutions that can’t understand them, need to know that their lives will get better and that they can have wonderful, fulfilling lives full of love.

The Bigots Don’t Win.

its important to understand bullying doesnt' just come from fellow students . in high school, i was called into office of the vice principal who told me if i knew was what was good for me, i would tone it down. no joke. (i really wish i had a tape recorder then). apparently a male classmate of mine told his parents (catholic, surprise surprise) that i had a crush on him and that made him uncomfortable. ugh! as if! in hind sight i see i was being bullied by the administration.

here is my submission for itgetsbetter. enjoy!

I've designed an "It Gets Better" t-shirt that I'm trying to spread the word about. My goal is to bring more attention to Dan Savage's fantastic project and also donate a really generous portion of my sales to the Trevor Project.
