Day of Purple
Today is a day of purple. On this day, people are asked to wear purple to support anti-bullying. Thank you to all of those who have spread the message around, wore purple today, or even just took the time to think about lives lost.
There are quite a few days like this, spaced all across the year. This day however, was put in place to commemorate the deaths of students who took their own lives due to bullying. Everyone must make sure that bullying will no longer be tolerated. Homophobia must be stopped or else we could lose many amazing and brilliant people. We can not simply let this and all types of bullying continue. This post should serve as a reminder of the incredible people who have been subjected to homophobic bullying and took their lives due to it. May they rest in peace.
