To the kids who stare blankly at empty screens where text messages and emails should be,
To the kids who hear time and time again that they’re not alone but you’re drowning in the overwhelming feeling that you are, in fact, alone,
To the girls who are called fat and ugly because you’re not a size zero and your face isn’t perfectly symmetrical,
To the boys who have your masculinity questioned constantly because you care about more than just sports and sex,
To the kids who have learned to feel ashamed of the color of your skin or the way your facial structure is laid out,
To the kids who worry constantly about what tomorrow holds because for you it’s more than a math test or facing your crush,
To the kids who are called ugly, faggot, loser, retarded, fat, worthless, unwanted, unloved,
I love you. And that’s just one more reason to keep going.
