It Doesn’t Get Much Better Than This Video

SO, this video is over a week old, but I just Gawked across it today.

Over the past couple of weeks celebrities across the country have been uploading their “It Gets Better” videos to Youtube. While most of them are heartfelt and inspiring, none of them even touch the the shoelaces of the one made by Fort Worth, Texas councilman, Joel Burns.

During a city council meeting, Councilman Burns took the time to show pictures/tell stories of the recent teenagers who took their own lives on account of bullying.

Mr. Burns then went on to tell a VERY personal story from his childhood, during which he unearthed details of which he had never before spoken.

Not only is this video incredibly touching and seeping with emotion, but also it is the first one where strength is not just encouraged, but exemplified.

Get the Kleenex ready.
