This is always a comforting thing to read, especially with the latest wave of not-so-pleasant news: the Phillies getting on board with a wonderful cause.
The Phillies players released their own version of the “It Gets Better” videos that are posted on the website each day by anyone. It Gets Better is an organization that helps young teens growing up dealing with bullying and other life problems that have led to so many teen suicides.
The group’s main focus is for homosexual children who are bullied in school. We have seen these bullyings result in some terrible tragedies such as the Rutgers student who killed himself almost two years ago.
Once again, I am proud that the Phillies are on board with something as meaningful as this. Video of the Phillies’ message after the jump.
