While this letter sounds good in theory, I do believe that actions speak louder than words. LGBT bullycides will continue as long as we are a nation that treats the LGBT community as second-class citizens. What kind of message does the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy send? What about Marriage Equality? Also, WHY doesn’t the White House send letters of condolence to families of military suicides? These are the things that need to change before I put any faith in a canned response from the White House. Show me, Mr. POTUS, don’t just tell me. Read more here.
