It has been a campaign for Adam Lambert fans for some time to see his “It Gets Better” video up to a million hits — and on Saturday, the achievement finally happened.
While it’s easy to just say that this is a tremendous accomplishment for Adam — it is also a tremendous accomplishment for his message. When Adam first released this video as a part of the massive campaign against gay suicide, it was at a time when people not only needed encouragement, but guidance. This is what made Adam’s video from an emotional standpoint stand out from the crowd, as he encouraged viewers to realize that a proactive mindset was going to be a key to overcoming bullying and hate. You can’t always change the mind of someone else, but you can rise above it and find the level of self-confidence you need to move forward.
Adam’s video is not the only one to reach this milestone, as such other big names as President Obama, project founders Dan and Terry, and even the gang at Pixar have all seen their videos attract a wide audience — and for good reason.
Now, we can only hope that Adam’s message will further go to inspire anyone who clicks on his video to hear what he has to say.
