Social Support of the Day: Emma Watson Reaches Out to England's First Openly Gay Rugby Player in Fantastic Fashion

He's received a lot of support for the decision, marking even more how much the world has grown in a short time.
And in a beautiful and classy move, Emma Watson congratulated Hirst in a series of tweets Aug. 18.
Courage is the choice and willingness to confront agony, pain, danger, uncertainty or intimidation.
