I’m not talking about the Cubs season, though I certainly hope it gets better.
I’m talking about the video the Cubs did for the “It Gets Better Project” and “The Trevor Project”.
Cubs fans, this is a moment to be proud of your team. They’re standing up and telling youth, gay and straight, it’s not okay for someone to be a dick and they deserve to be treated better.
And that it does get better.
Whoever said high school was the best part of life had their pants on fire. From junior high until college, life is nothing but an awkward, emotionally trying (if not abusive) time. Kids, particularly those in the LGBT sect who might not be getting the most support, need to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
And I’m proud that the Cubs decided to say it.
