Make It Stop (September's Children)

Chicago-based band Rise Against has released a new single from their album Endgame. Called "Make It Stop (September's Children)," it takes a chilling look at the bullying that claimed the lives of nine children last September. All of these children were gay, and the video addresses the taunting and unnecessary hate they and many like them are subjected to on a daily basis. But with the help of the It Gets Better project (members of which make a cameo in the video below), Rise Against look to at least call to attention the malice and spite that goes on, not just in school halls, but everywhere, just because of "who they chose to kiss." Definitely worth a watch.
