I'm Wearing Purple Today

I am wearing purple today to remember the seven (that we know about) gay teens who have taken their own lives recently as a result of anti-gay bullying. For more information about this day of remembrance please check this page.

I also donated money to the Human Rights Campaign, because as a Christian and a loving human being, I believe that all people deserve equal rights, and to be treated with dignity and fairness. If God is love, and love is of God, and we are made in His/Her image, then we too need to show that same love that He/She has for His/Her entire creation. I chose the Human Rights Campaign because their website states that
As the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization, HRC envisions an America where LGBT people are ensured of their basic equal rights, and can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.
So, put on some purple, watch one of the It Gets Better videos, and work for justice in the name of love.
