City Council Member, Joel Burns, in Fort Worth, Texas tells his personal story in hopes to stop gay bullying and suicides.
This video is 12 mins…yes longer than the desired length of quick viral video. And this one will also not make you laugh. But it will hopefully teach even just one person the compassion we should all have. Please watch it and please pass it along, even share it with your older children. It should be shown in schools. I have never been so proud of a stranger. I applaud you Mr. Burns.
