Speaker of the House John Boehner on why, after he promised it wouldn't: "I got overrun, that’s what happened."
So, he admits it? He can’t even run his own party?
I’ve talked a lot about Jake Stallman here on this blog and now I have more good news—you can read my previous post HERE.
Jake came out as gay in the seventh grade and was instantly the target of bullies and haters. But Jake wasn’t having it, and stood up for himself, and demanded that the bullying stop.
And just last week Jake Stallman received the Spirit of Matthew award from the Matthew Shepard Foundation for overcoming bullying and starting an anti-bullying coalition in his high school. Even his mother, Tania, stood up to the bullies, and those who think boys will be boys, and started a Facebook page for anti-bullying.
“I decided to start an anti-bullying campaign on Facebook. When I started it more people were coming forward, letting him know that they had the same concerns you know, with being bullied in the school district, elementary, middle and high school.”—Tania Stallman
After Jake and his mother turned to the Matthew Shepard foundation, they invited him to blog for the foundation, in turn becoming a symbol and ally for other gay students in his school and his town. With his newfound confidence, Jake became the first male cheerleader in his high school’s history.
”I feel like I became a warrior, a fighter. And I think I became a fighter because there are kids out there who are struggling right now. And if I’m not strong, who’s going to be strong for them?”—Jake Stallman
That’s what we need, more Jake Stallman’s, and more allies like Jake’s mom.
Congratulations, Jake, your strength is enormous!
