In case you haven't heard......

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 and 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, Asher Brown, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase and Billy Lucas. You are loved.

My kids came home from school talking about it, and most of thier schools are planning to wear purple tomorrow. I'm not is school (obviously) but I will wear purple to work tomorrow in support. The abuse and hatred needs to stop, gay children don't choose to be gay and they deserve the same rights that you and I have.

Oh I should have noted that the text in purple was copied from a text going around on facebook.
