Purple Socks ? A Purple Tee ? Pants ? Whatever you've got, you'll want to dig it out today :)
To bring awareness of the recent suicides by bullied gay teens, today is world-wide Spirit Day. Canadian teen Brittany McMillan started a day that has over a million people honoring the lives of gay and lesbian teens who have committed suicide because of the bullies at school and in our communities, and making us all aware of the epidemic. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ ( Lesbian Gay Bi-sexual Teen Questioning ) flag. Though it is reported that she didn't get approval from the families of the teens who took their own lives, the movement has spread like wild-fire all around the world.
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation ( GLAAD ) is featuring a "Wear Purple" page on Facebook, to purple their profile pic on Facebook or Twitter.
Many teens suffer homophobic abuse in their schools or even in their own homes. and as a result some have committed suicide. Enough already ! I know you all have some purple somewhere :) So join in the movement and let people know it's not OK to bully anyone. For any reason.
The US National Suicide Hotline phone number is:
