His efforts did not go unrewarded as he was invited to the White House where he met President Obama and even asked for a job. It's too bad that more young people don't get involved in like manner instead of being made to feel inferior, even taking their own life as a result. As you grow older one realizes that life is about choices. But at a young age, those choices aren't always part of their capacity to weigh and make a logical decision. Many of them end their lives at their own hands after the relentless bullying and tormenting taking place in our school systems today. Much of that torment occurs with the sight and approval of teachers and administrators. Hopefully this young man will be the one, with the introduction of a new bill he has crafted, to help put an end to the bullying and suicides amongst LGBTQ and others "different" students.
