It Gets Better

"I wish I could have talked to this kid for five minutes. I wish I could have told Billy that it gets better. I wish I could have told him that, however bad things were, however isolated and alone he was, it gets better." Dan Savage

If by some fluke you're not familiar with Dan Savage's 'It Gets Better' project, go take a look now. Set up late last year in response to the suicide of Billy Lucas and a number of other teenagers who were bullied because they were, or their peers suspected they were, gay. I post about it because a) it's an amazing movement that has in a short space of time inspired 10,000 user created videos with over 30 million views, and one that deserves as much support as it can get, and b) to show these two brilliant films: one of the new Google Chrome films (below) that takes the project as its subject, and another immensely moving short film (above) from Apple employees. That is all.
