Why My Boss Rocks

This is why my boss rocks. Here is a video Secretary Clinton made in response to the recent gay teen suicides. And thumbs up to GLIFAA for helping make this happen.

She says:

"I have a message for all the young people out there who are being bullied...hang in there, and ask for help. Your life is so important.

...

"The story of America is the story of people coming together to tear down barriers, stand up for rights and insist on equality, not only for themselves but for all people.

...

"Here at the State Department, I am grateful every day for the work of our LGBT employees who are serving the United States as Foreign Service Officers and Civil Servants here and around the world. It wasn't long ago that these men and women would not have been able to serve openly, but today they can because it has gotten better. And it will get better for you.

...

"Please remember that your life is valuable and you are not alone. Many people are standing with you and sending you their thoughts, their prayers and their strengths. Count me among them. Take care of yourself."

I knew she'd have an opinion about it, but I never thought she'd make a video statement. That's impressive and you're right, awesome boss. Thanks for sharing this.
