Celebs Praise Caitlyn Jenner's Moving ESPY Speech

If you missed Caitlyn Jenner's speech at last night's ESPY awards, in which she was given the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage, I highly recommend stopping everything you're doing right now (eating, working, everything!) and giving her powerful words a listen, because they may inspire you to go about your day with fearlessness and love in your heart. I'm not the only one who thinks so -- several celebrities reacted to Caitlyn's speech on social media, and their praise should make her proud.

Jenner brought the house down last night when she accepted her honor and used her precious time at the podium to talk about how crucial it is that we learn to accept one another's differences -- for the sake of so many young people who are confused and coming to terms with their own gender identity. She reflected fondly on her time in sports but made it clear that the challenges she has faced in the last few months have been the most difficult of her life. She also showed gratitude -- thanking everyone from her children and mother to Diane Sawyer and several transgender celebs like Laverne Cox, who are helping to bring positive attention to the transgender community.

As is usually the case in life, she showed gratitude and others responded with gratitude and positivity.
