I'm Wearing Purple Today
I'm wearing purple today in honor of ALL GLBT kids who are bullied because of their sexual orientation. My heart goes out to the families of those who have lost their children to suicide because of this horrific kind of intolerance and hatefulness. Ellen DeGeneres said it well, "Things will get easier, people's minds will change, and you should be alive to see it."
Everyone should hear Fort Worth City Councilman Joel Burns share his powerful story.
May we all someday learn to celebrate our differences and love people for who they are, as they are.
For any GLBT or questioning teens who are feeling suicidal, please contact the Trevor Project.
