E.M Forster: It gets better.

It Gets Better: E.M. Forster http://strn.gr/6672314

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and bies; school was the unhappiest time of my life, and the worst trick it played on me was to pretend that it was the world in miniature. For it hindered me from discovering how lovely and delightful the world can be, and how much of it is intelligible. From this platform of middle age, this throne of experience, this alter of wisdom, this scaffold of character, this beacon of hope, this threshold of decay, my last words to you are: “there’s a better time coming.”

 I’ve been toying with the idea of making my own it gets better video. After the letter in the Shropshire Star and seeing Forster get the ball rolling all those years ago… it’s my time.
