We were so deeply moved by the above video, of 14 year bullying victim Jonah Mowry bravely sharing his story with the world. Not just recounting how difficult it has been for him but also revealing how strong he is and how much he has to live for! That optimism in the face of adversity is so inspiring!
Jonah and his video really shook us to the core of our being and we took it upon ourselves to post it on ALL our websites, our Facebook, our Twitter - and we even Tweeted it to just about every celeb we followed!
The amount of support Jonah has gotten is overwhelming!
He has given the world a great gift with this poignant video!
And, he HAS saved the lives of other young souls who will hopefully follow his lead and stick it out! Suicide is NOT the answer!
We are very happy to report that Jonah is doing very well and happy!
Jonah uploaded his bullying video in August, though it just went viral. He has this other YouTube channel where he's been having fun lipsynching to some of our favorite artists, goofing around in other vids, and just being the very special kid he is.
We've also been chatting with Jonah on his Twitter account and through DM. He is so touched by all the love being sent his way. He tells us he is truly in a much better place. Happier and with friends that care! Plus, he is also getting some counseling - something we'd recommend to anyone going through difficult times.
The internet can oftentimes be a big bad thing. But, in times like this, it can be quite beautiful!
We also invited Jonah to our birthday party in March (all expenses paid by us) and we can't wait to meet him and for him to enjoy all the cool performers and get to meet all the celebrity guests! It should be some much-needed major fun! Because that is what life is all about - having fun! And sticking around long enough to enjoy all the fun to come!
Life is not fun every single day. But it is a great gift and you are special! Know that!
As we reported on Wednesday night, the President shocked the nation when he withdrew federal protection for transgender students. Previously, under Barack Obama's administration, students were allowed to use whichever restroom corresponded to their identified sex.
On Thursday, the I Am Cait star -- who supported Trump over opponent Hillary Clinton in the last election -- took to Instagram to reveal her thoughts about the new provisions... and she is PISSED!
The athlete begins by offering encouraging words to transgender youth everywhere, saying:
"I have a message for the trans kids of America. You are winning. I know it doesn't feel that way today or every day, but you _ are _ winning. You are going to keep on winning so much you're going to get sick of winning. Very soon, we'll win full freedom nationwide, and it's going to happen with bipartisan support. For all our friends out there, If you want to be part of this winning side, you can help by checking out the National Center for Trans Equality and letting Washington hear how you feel loud and clear."
However, the reality TV personality also has a VERY strong message for the haters, including some not-so-subtle shade thrown at Jeff Sessions:
