Nil desperandum - Never despair. A medical student's journey in Odense

Humanity

My sister showed me this video clip of Fort Worth City Councilman Joel Burns, talking to the adults and LBGT-teens of the USA. A very honest and a most moving speech that really comes from the bottom of his heart. A caring reach out to the many bullied teens around the nation, as a consequence of the recent wave of teen suicides.

The courage to speak out publicly about his personal experiences is not what is most admirable, it is his humanity and compassion for the suffering teens that are going through what he has been through. It is his strong sense of moral integrity to defend and empathize the rights of the weak ones and the obligations of the stronger ones, that is admirable.
