Every single teenager (and parent) should watch this video.
This is maybe the most powerful "It Gets Better" video that exists. Joel Burns is from a small Texas town, son of an actual cowboy, and a current Ft. Worth city councilman. This guy is absolutely heartbreakingly awesome and I wish I lived one town over so I could vote for him on his next election. And he gets a standing ovation, too. In Ft. Worth (cow town, for those not familiar.) Texas.
