in Love, lowercase b

What every Monday needs. A good cry.

Warning: It’s intense and heartbreaking. And honest.

That breaks my heart. No child (or adult) should ever have to feel like that.

A heartbreaking, and tragically true, story beautifully told. Thanks for sharing this. Every parent should see it.

Wow, you certainly started my Monday with snot streaming down my face! Wow, this was incredible. One of my closest friends has a very young transgender daughter and deals with crap like this daily. Thank goodness the little girl has a wonderfully loving environment to express her true self.

Sitting here crying for all the children, teens adults in the world who are pushed to this point by others who just will not understand that people are not all the same. This was so incredibly intense.

Never felt hate for anyone who believed differently than me – just a difference of opinion. But THAT video is an eye opener for anyone who’s heterosexual on what the other side gets. Thanks for sharing although it did break my heart!

Wow! That was incredibly sad. My sister is a teacher and recently lost one of her students to suicide. He was gay. So sad.

I think that is possibly the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. I was picked on in high school but those were the days before everyone had a cell phone and a Facebook account. I’m very thankful I don’t have to go through what kids in school go through now. Thank you for sharing.

This was heartbreaking. It actually kills me to know that this happens in real life. I can’t imagine children being terrorized to this degree, and yet every single day more stories come out about this type of thing. I am thankful that I am a well rounded adult and made it through puberty and high school relatively unscathed. Thank you for sharing this. Hopefully more people share it…

I know there was a movement to get the movie “Bully” shown in all schools as part of anti-bullying programs ….. I think THIS should be shown right along with it.
So powerful, moving and heart wrenching .
A movement needs to be made to have this seen by as many people ( especially kids/teens) as possible. Immediately .
