Student Comes Out To Teacher During Writing Assignment

...and the teacher's response is absolutely worthy of applause. 

In case the teacher's handwriting is hard to make out, here's the response: "I am honored to be a witness to this weight being lifted off. You are an amazing, dynamic, compassionate, "with-it" young man who will give the world a gift just by you being you offering your love & spirit. If people choose not to be comfortable with your honesty — their loss my friend — their loss."
