It seems that there are so many great videos that I come across each week, I have decided to post a video of the week each week so that I can share some of these with our school community. You can also check out all my favorite videos on my YouTube Channel.
My video this week comes from Fort Worth, Texas where Councilman Joel Burns delivered a message that has been viewed close to 2 million times in the last week. Councilman Burns reviewed some of the heartbreaking stories of harassment, bullying, and gay-bashing that have resulted in the deaths of a number of young men in recent weeks. As we celebrate Ally Week, I think it is imperative that we have open discussion of tolerance more than just a few times a year. We need schools that embrace the wonderful diversity in students every week.
