In honor of the lives that were lost to bullying, I am taking part of Spirit Day. In addition to wearing purple, I will be taking a moment of silence. I will take six minutes, one minute for each of the lives lost in the past few months, to think about their pain. I will think about how it must have felt to be in their shoes. To be called those names. To be physically attacked. To feel as if there was no way out but suicide. Think about what was going through their minds before they ended it all. They believed that they were better off dead than being perceived as gay, or people knowing that they were gay.

If you agree to do the same, please repost this to your journal. Spread the message of love. Stop the bullying. End the hate.

It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

RIP Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh (top)
RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase (middle)
RIP Asher Brown and Billy Lucas. (bottom)

REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.
