    I first saw this a couple of days ago and can't bring myself to watch it again. The innocence of the boy contrasts so sharply against the hatred and glee of the adults--it's shocking and cruel and painful and incredibly hurtful.

    It makes me wonder if I would speak up if I were in that situation...surrounded by cheering and hate-filled people. What would I say? Would I have the courage to face that kind of evil?

    If I had the chance and didn't, I don't know how I would ever get over it.

    But I do have the chance don't I? Come November, I can speak up.

    I hate this video. But I need to see it, I need to be aware.
