I should have written this this morning, but better late than never.
I am sure you all have heard about the rash of suicides that have been the result of anti-gay bullying over the last few months. Today is the day that we remember them. I encourage everyone to recognize Spirit Day by wearing the colour purple and/or changing their Facebook profile pictures to the picture above.
No one should be subject to bullying to the point that the commit suicide. We should all promote a culture where differences are celebrated, not ridiculed, and people can be themselves.
