Did you guys rock your purple today ? As you probably guessed the purple outfit I wore in my last post, I wore yesterday, so I could get the word out and get everyone ready for today. Thanks for all your comments and support. The web was crawling with Spirit Day events and Facebook was swarming with purple-clad images all over :) I posted an image on Flickr, and right beside me was Kathy Griffin ! So, being the fan I am, I commented on her photo and invited her to visit Cincy and also pop a comment on my blog ;)
I suppose we all have a story about being bullied. During my rural 70's formative years at a public automaton producing school, at least back in the day when teachers weren't as cool nor aware as they are today , I was victimized as well, but I was never bullied for my sexual orientation or religion. I was bullied for Who I was, however. I was a Cheerleader and there was a girl who hated me for being me. She would slam me into my locker or knock me down any chance she got. My complaints were met with apathy. The following year, she moved on to someone else. I was so afraid to go to school for fear of getting hit or hurt. I was an easy target, but hopefully through the "It Will Get Better" campaign, many kids will know there are people who care. They can stand up and be proud of who they are and get support :) Hopping off my soap-box now ......
I love to rock my "Cause Flair" ;)
