President Obama delivers message to bully victims

President Obama posted a video this week telling victims of bullying that it will get better.  The president speaks directly to the camera saying, “I don’t know what it’s like to be picked on for being gay, but I do know what it’s like to grow up feeling that sometimes you don’t belong.” The president calls for an end to the bullying-as-right-of-passage attitude and tells young people that “things will get better.”
