Hey it’s Amanda!
Recently, a young man named Cole Ledford was punched in the face by a man after kissing his boyfriend in public. Cole responded by tweeting that he is proud of who he is, and isn’t sorry or going to apologize for who his (you go, Cole!) Cole’s tweet has since been retweeted tens of thousands of times, and a huge outpouring of support has reached him via the hashtag “Love is Louder.”
This story made me realize that social media can be used for the greater good, and allow people to support others despite being thousands of miles away. It also restored my faith in humanity (besides the idiot who punched Cole in the face), and gave me some feels.
