In this season of giving thanks, we at YouthBeat admit that we're thankful for all kids, tweens and teens! But we couldn't help singling this one 14 year old boy out...Graeme Taylor, an openly gay 14 year old, seems to have the spirit of giving in mind when he puts himself on the line to defend a teacher who was recently suspended after kicking a student out of his classroom who had made homophobic remarks. In this profound and moving speech, Taylor lays out the issue of gay bullying better than anyone we've heard to date. So give this a look, get inspired, and give a little thanks that there are kids, tweens and teens like this out there!
