Every once in a while we encounter a statement or idea that stops us in our tracks and makes us re-think our path. In this episode I talk with Jerylin Pool who is a strong advocate for same sex marriage. She shares her experience at a recent Human Rights Campaign (HRC)during which she had her mind opened and her direction changed. The topic of teen suicide especially around LGBT youth is a troubling concept that must be dealt with because it is our reality and does not need to be.
