(Artist: Rise Against)
Tonight MTV airs the Special 'It Gets Better'. It's an in-depth look into the reality of bullying within the LBGT community. The 'It Gets Better Project' was created to remind LGBT teens across the country that no matter how hard things may seem, life does get better. One particular artist that has a fierce passion on this subject is Chicago rock outfit Rise Against . Last Spring, Rise Against released a powerful video with a distinct message against bullying. The video for their song "Make It Stop (September's Children)" was actually filmed at Rolling Meadows High School where Rise Against singer Tim McIlrath went to school. It was created in partnership with the LGBT support project It Gets Better. "Make It Stop," a response to the increased number of LGBT teen suicides follows three young people's struggles with bullying at school--struggles that bring them within moments of ending their own lives.
