“it’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years”

Video from this website: “We all have teachers that make a lasting impression on us. It appears as if young Ann Arbor student Graeme Taylor has already found his. The 14-year-old, who is openly gay, bravely stood up for his teacher, Jay McDowell, at a recent school board meeting. McDowell was disciplined on October 20 for removing two students who had made anti-gay remarks in class. During his speech in support of his teacher, Taylor revealed his problems with bullying and a suicide attempt at the age of 9.”
