President Obama's 'It Gets Better' message for bullied youth




President Barack Obama has recorded his own "It Gets Better" message for bullied youth:

Like all of you, I was shocked and saddened by the deaths of several young people who were bullied and taunted for being gay and who ultimately took their own lives. As a parent of two daughters it breaks my heart. It's something that just shouldn't happen in this country. We've got to dispel this myth that bullying is a normal rite of passage, that it's some inevitable part of growing up. It's not. We have an obligation to ensure that our schools are safe for all of our kids.
