President Obama is joining nationally syndicated columnist Dan Savage’s “It Gets Better” Project to fight against gay bulling. Obama released an anti-bullying video yesterday for the project. In it, he attempts to dispel the myth that bullying is an inevitable part of growing up.
Savage talks to Kiran and John on this morning’s American Morning about President Obama's partnership and the It Gets Better Project that he started this September to speak directly to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth who are bullied at school by peers, teachers, parents, churches and politicians.
Thousands of people have posted their stories to It Gets Better, including celebrities and other public profiles, urging teenagers not to take their own lives because life does improve.
