As a kid, Gov. Peter Shumlin struggled with having severe dyslexia. And a big nose.
But it got better. Now he's the governor of Vermont. Suck on that, small-nosed bookworms!
Shumlin just released a video for the "It Gets Better Project," an initiative launched by syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage and his partner Terry in response to a number of suicides by bullied teens. "It Gets Better" presents videos and stories that offer hope to young people facing harassment, delivering the simple message that life won't always suck as much as it can during your teen years.
And now, Peter Shumlin.
