Love is Louder-TODAY!

Love is Louder was started by actress Brittany Snow, The Jed Foundation and MTV to build on the outpouring of support online after the lives of multiple teenagers were lost to suicide in September 2010. This movement strives to amplify the momentum of other inspiring online campaigns and invite anyone who has felt mistreated, misunderstood or isolated into the conversation. They are here to raise the volume around a critical message -- that love and support is more powerful than the external and internal voices that bring us down, cause us pain and make us feel hopeless.

The more voices that join the movement, the louder the message becomes. Find out more about this movement and lend your voice to it today, 10/19/10. Here's how.

Thanks for posting this, Melissa!

Love is louder than hate. Love is louder than fear. Love is louder than silence...but if you see something, say something!
