Young people and dreams are like baby turtles on the beach. The eggs hatch and they have to scramble to the water before the birds get them. We all have our sights set on reaching the water, but only a lucky few make it there unscathed. Life has a way of swooping in and picking off the forces and beliefs that motivate us.

And [Glee] really was what it got credit for being, in that it did things that don’t happen enough: it was a show where an actress with Down Syndrome had a real role in which she got to be funny, and where Chris Colfer sang in the first season in a way nobody was singing on television, and where gender fluidity and grief and loss got to be real.
hrhchriscolfer: Just found out about the #PCA award! Three years in a row?!?! Thank you all so much!!! The category wasn’t televised so let me tell you now I am forever grateful, humbled, and quite spoiled! As promised, here’s a video of Coop, Brian, and I dancing to Taylor Swift.
