In honor of the lives that were lost to bullying, I am taking part of Spirit Day. In addition to wearing purple, I will be taking a moment of silence. I will take six minutes, one minute for each of the lives lost in the past few months, to think about their pain. I will think about how it must have felt to be in their shoes. To be called those names. To be physically attacked. To feel as if there was no way out but suicide. Think about what was going through their minds before they ended it all. They believed that they were better off dead than being perceived as gay, or people knowing that they were gay.

 
If you agree to do the same, please repost this to your journal. Spread the message of love.

Stop the bullying. End the hate.

"1 out of every 10 people are born Gay. That means 1 of every 10 people are instantly put down, given bad labels, left alone, put in a minority and so much more, all for something they didn't ask for. Gay teens are turning to suicide as a way of escaping. If you want to tell them that life will get better, & you respect them for who they are, copy & paste this. Most of you won't, but let's see the 5% of you who will."

Rest in Peace, Matthew Shepard (December 1, 1976 – October 12, 1998).

It’s been decided. 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 at 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. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

RIP Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh (top)
RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase (middle)
RIP Asher Brown and Billy Lucas. (bottom)

REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.

You give me the wings to fly
You are the clear blue sky
I'm floating so free, so high
Falling with grace - for you and I
You give me the wings to fly



"Truth is, sometimes I miss you so much I can hardly stand it."
- So, so true... dedicated to all the people that I loved, and lost. Grandpas, grandma, Heath... All of you are the light of my life. I'll never forget you.

I will miss Stephen forever... 

This video is really beautiful, and I think that everyone should check it out. It's one of the Boyzone songs, called Better. Seeing it made me realize just how much I really loved Stephen, and just how amazingly brave and beautiful he is; and just how much his bandmates Ronan, Keith, Shane and Mikey loved him and respected him in every aspect. Kudos to you boys, you are amazing.

See the video

Rest in peace Farrah Fawcett and the one and only, the legend - Michael Jackson. I hope both of you found your peace now.
