That's so cool, how he can openly say such personal things, in order to help kids like himself. Where I live, or at least in my class, we don`t hate on gays or lesbians. It`s become a way of life to our generation. Soon enough, no one will really have a problem with it.

<I>It is because gay people have birth defects, and just like any other birth defect they will be hated on. its what kids do</i>

Being gay isn't a birth defect, nor a choice.

That is what is so bloody sad about kids who kill themselves at such a young age. It does get better, life gets better.

I had a friend who's sister killed herself at the age of 16. She was beautiful, smart, and had what I thought was everything going for her.
I wish I could only go back, and tell her, life gets better, what is so horrible now, will seem so insignificant when you get older.
Yeah well, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride...
