Purple Wednesday It Is!!!!

This Wednesday (10/20) – Wear Purple to Remember
Too many young people have taken their lives because of anti-gay bullying. While there has been an outpouring of shock and support from public officials in the form of “It Gets Better” messages, we still must address the deeper societal issues driving a culture of relentless bullying – and we must send a strong message that such a culture is unacceptable.

Wear Purple this Wednesday, October 20 (that's today in my neck of the woods...), and Help participate in a day of remembrance... . The idea for this great event originated online, and nearly one million people are already participating on Facebook.

You can sign and Take the Pledge on Facebook.... and hear/share stories by following this link:

"I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe. "

"If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them."

"In the present circumstances, no one can afford to assume that someone else will solve their problems. Every individual has a responsibility to help guide our global family in the right direction. Good wishes are not sufficient; we must become actively engaged."-- His Holiness the Dalai Lama, from "The Path to Tranquility
