This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
Colorado, you’ve impressed us again!
You may remember the story of transgender 6-year-old Coy Mathis who was banned from using the girls bathroom at Eagleside Elementary School.
Well she’s finally won the right to pee in her restroom of choice!
Her mother, Kathryn Mathis stated:
"Schools should not discriminate against their students, and we are thrilled that Coy can return to school and put this behind her. All we ever wanted was for Coy's school to treat her the same as other little girls. We are extremely happy that she now will be treated equally.”
We are thrilled too!
This is a huge step for all kids who face the same problem as Coy.
Good job, Colorado!
