Cheryl Rainfield’s It Gets Better video for queer youth & anyone thinking of suicide

You’ve probably seen or heard about the It Gets Better Campaign in response to all the recent gay suicides resulting from homophobic bullying? I hope you have, any way.

I know what it’s like to be bullied, abused, and hated–and to want to kill myself. But I am so grateful I didn’t. There is so much good in my life now!

I hope you’ll consider watching and/or sharing my It Gets Better video for queer youth, anyone who’s been bullied, harassed, or abused and is thinking of suicide.

    Thank you for sharing this heartfelt message. It is inspiring and so important. If it helps just one teen who is questioning the value of his or her life, it’s worth it.

  2. Cheryl Rainfield Says:

    Thank you so much, Tricia! (hugging you) I really appreciate hearing that. I hope it does reach people who need it.

  5. Cheryl Rainfield Says:

    Laurel–*thank you*! (hugging you) That is lovely of you to say, and it felt really good to read. (smiling at you) Thank you!
