Wear Purple for Spirit Day

 

Wear Purple for Spirit Day, originally uploaded by Tempest Hennesy.

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock and haven’t heard, today has been declared Wear Purple for Spirit Day. What does this mean? It means we’re taking back the power from bullies against Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual and Transgender. We’re taking back the power from bullies in general!

The idea behind Spirit Day, first created by teenager Brittany McMillan earlier this month, is a simple one, not dissimilar to the idea of “Spirit Week” held in many high schools, and can be summed up in three words: Everyone Rally Together.

Spirit Day honors the teenagers who had taken their own lives in recent weeks. But just as importantly, it’s also a way to show the hundreds of thousands of LGBT youth who face the same pressures and bullying, that there is a vast community of people who support them.
