Purple

"I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it."
-Alice Walker

Okay, so as you may already know, today was PurpleDay. [The-day-you-wear-purple-for-awareness just didn't cut it as a name.] It was for a group of some LesGayBiTrans teenagers that have quite recently committed suicide. It's extremely sad, to know that ignorance has gone that far to where people can't stand to live any longer. Yet it's also really mind-blowing, to know that this movement had spreaded quite its ways across the world today, reaching places on the other side of the globe with the message of equality and understanding. Even if it still seems dark, I feel like we're fixing the world, one day at a time.

I, personally, feel like the right to choose who you love is a natural right, no matter who it may be. I'm straight, but I've been called bisexual before, just because I think all people are beautiful. And they are. I just wish everyone else felt that way. Things would be a lot easier that way.

I wish everyone could/would just wear purple everyday. Or I wish I would have worn more purple today.

I really suggest that you honor them through memory, and just read at their stories, or look at their Facebook pages. It's sad, but it gives me hope.
