I was blessed to stumble across an amazing music group yesterday. It’s safe to say I’m in love with Rise Above. How did the love affair start? With the song and video for their song “Make it Stop.”
This song was written out of horror and pain in the wake of teen suicides that recently took place due to bullying. The group reached out to the “It Gets Better” Project established by Dan Savage and created what I feel is a powerful, emotional piece of art.

When I see something like this, I just have to share it. So many are targeted for their beliefs, who they love, or physical differences. For some the pain can feel like too much. I hope that messages like this song can remind those struggling that there are those of us who do love them, who will fight for their right to be themselves, and who accept them for all they are without hesitation or question.
You are beautiful. You are loved. You are perfectly created the way you are supposed to be. You deserve to feel pride in who you are.
Don’t ever give up.
