Miley Cyrus Launches Homeless Youth Foundation GMA Video

What is you opinion of Miley Cyrus?

I must admit that over the last few years I haven’t had great of an opinion of Miley Cyrus.  I thought she went just a little too far with some of the things she was doing. It broke my heart to see such a drastic change in her.

But I after seeing this Good Morning America video I have changed the way I look at Miley Cyrus. I still may not agree with some of the things she is doing but her launching The Happy Hippie Foundation is a great thing. I am glad to see her making a positive impact to LGBT homeless youth in this country.

Miley Cyrus is trying to use her celebrity status to bring awareness about the LGBT homeless youth. I commend her for that.

Watch this video to learn more.

Miley Cyrus Launches Homeless Youth Foundation

No matter what your opinion is of homosexuality…

Every young person regardless of their sexual orientation has value!

Every young person matters! I don’t care what race they are or what their sexual orientation is,  they are a human being that deserve to be treated like they are a valuable person.

It breaks my heart to learn so many young people are thrown out of their homes by church going families. I don’t get it. How do you abandon your child just because you don’t agree with their lifestyle. As a Christian I am called to love everyone, not just those that agree with me.

Miley Cyrus is doing a really great thing with The Happy Hippie Foundation!

More people should care about the youth of this country including the LGBT homeless youth. The youth are our future!
