Spirit

I've got spirit,
Yes I do
I've got spirit,
How about YOU?
ARE YOU WEARING PURPLE TODAY?
If you are not, you should.

"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
and 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."

As the mom of a gay son, I am wearing purple for sure today, showing my support.

You know, we don't all have to agree with their choice.

Maybe it goes against your beliefs.

Maybe it grosses you out.

Maybe you are against homosexuality for a number of other reasons...

But you know what?

Just because we don't agree, doesn't mean we need to bully these people, and make their lives hell.

We can agree to disagree.

Live and let live. To each their own.

Lets have some peace in this world.

STOP BULLYING!

Play nice people!

No one should be made to feel so horrible about their life choices that they think they can not live any longer.

Suicide is bad for everyone.

Lets stop the madness.

What are you waiting for? Get on your purple.

Bullying hurts.

Suicide kills.

Peace.

Toodles...
