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.



Spread this one around, it's some powerful stuff.

Ahhh, I just saw this on Gawker and knew it would end up here. One of the best "it gets better" stories I've seen. (Not best, but you know what I mean)

(OT: but those short ribs were MOTHER-EFFING DELICIOUS. You's a genius Stoney.)

And teacher! (in re your subject line)

Thanks for sharing this one Stoney. I'm sitting here, mascara running down my face. Great, powerful words from someone who's been there. I hope this reaches everyone who needs to hear it and that it gives them some hope.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
