“life will get better”

Openly gay Fort Worth, Texas, City Councilman Joel Burns gave an impassioned plea to youth struggling with their sexual identity during a meeting Tuesday night, urging them not to despair in the face of intense adversity.

“I want to tell any teen who might see this, give yourself a chance to see just how much better life will get,” Burns said, fighting back tears. “And it will get better, you will get out of the household that doesn’t accept you, you will get out of that high school and you never have to deal with those jerks again if you don’t want to. You will find and you will make new friends who will understand you and life will get so, so, so much better.” [Huffington Post]
