Elizabeth Warren: It Gets Better (VIDEO)


US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has recorded her own contribution to the It Gets Better project which aims to let bullied LGBT teens and all youth know that there is life after high school.

Warren, drawing on her experience as a former school teacher, says in the video: “I’m Elizabeth Warren, and you may be wondering what I have to say to you. After all, I haven’t lived your life. But when I graduated from college, I was a schoolteacher, and I watched what happens in hallways, on sidewalks, out in the schoolyard. I watched kids who pushed, who bullied. I saw how much pain some kids could inflict on other kids.”

Warren goes on to say that struggling young people should not be afraid to ask for help, adding, “Because here’s what you’ll find, there are a lot of different people out there in this world, and a lot of people who celebrate those differences. That’s what makes us strong. That’s what makes us exciting. So, hang in there. It gets better.”
