Wow. This is one of the most powerful, inspiring It Gets Better videos that we've ever seen!
Check out the clip (above), featuring Tim Zaal and Matthew Boger, who first encountered each other in the '80s when a teenage Tim beat and assaulted the then-homeless Matthew, only for them to be reunited six years ago when both adults found themselves working at The Museum of Tolerance, having both individually matured and changed to want to fight ignorance and hate!
It's absolutely incredible to see these two moved so far past their mistakes as teenagers, and finding their way back to each other - to tell the same message!
It doesn't matter who you once were or what you've been through - there is ALWAYS the chance to come around and make it right!
As Matt says:
"The bully is also a victim. We don't know what their circumstances are, and why they're bullying."
Thank you, gentlemen, for sharing your story!
If this can't ignite a change in people's hearts, we don't know what can!
Remember, everyone -
IT GETS BETTER! You never know what the future can bring!
