The only purple I own… #SpiritDay

Today is Spirit Day, in support of LGBT youth:

Millions of Americans wear purple on Spirit Day as a sign of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth and to speak out against bullying. Spirit Day was started in 2010 by teenager Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives. Observed annually on October 20, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, media professionals and celebrities wear purple, which symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag. Getting involved is easy — participants are asked to simply “go purple” on October 20 as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are.

Until next time...

  1. Oh darn! If I had known this ahead of time I could’ve worn my purple Dig Dug t-shirt to work.

    Completely unrelated: all those rubber duckies in the background remind me of 2 that I saw in a store not too long ago. They were covered in rinestones and looked like disco balls, one silver, one gold.
