At tonight's ESPYS, Caitlyn Jenner received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award — and gave a moving speech while accepting the coveted honor.
"The last few months have been a whirlwind of so many different experiences and emotions," she began her emotional speech. "This transition has been harder on me than anything I could imagine."

"The biggest fear I’ve always had in coming out is I never wanted to hurt anyone else. Most of all, my family and my kids. I always wanted my children to be so proud of their dad for what he was able to accomplish in his life. You guys have given so much back to me, you’ve given so much support. I am so so grateful to have all of you in my life," she said while holding back tears.

She additionally honored other transgendered individuals across the country who may be going through a similar experience as she has the past few months.
"All across this country right now, all across the world, there are young people coming to terms with being transgender," she began. "Trans people deserve your respect. And from that respect comes a more compassionate community, a more empathic society and a better world for all of us."
"It's about all of us accepting one another," Caitlyn said.
