Is it safe to be a gay or lesbian teen in Northfield?

I just saw an AP story on the NY Times website titled Gay Councilman’s Plea to Bullied Teens Goes Viral about this YouTube video (“Fort Worth City Councilman Joel Burns reaches out to GLBT teens with a personal story and a message of hope.”)

This video should be shown to all our middle and high school-aged kids in all our area schools. It’s the best suicide prevention tool I can imagine.
