What God would damn a heart? What God drove us apart?Make It Stop (September's Children) by: Rise Against
This song really opened up my eyes to how badly bullying truly is. In this song, they name a mere few of these young adolescents that have committed suicide as a result of bullying.
I not only wear purple today because of those lgbt members that are bullied, but also the others that are abused who are not a part of this community. Those who it has killed, and those who are still fighting it.
No one should believe the bullies that torment them, and resort to this sad epidemic of suicide.
Please seek help, reach out and someone will reach out to you. You're not alone, you don't have to go through this by yourself.
A version of my Transgender Day Of Remembrance image modified for FaceBook. Spread awareness.
Today, November 20, is the International Transgender Day of Remembrance. Today, November 20, is a time to remember those humans who have been murdered, some before they could even walk, because they "differed" from societal gender norms. Because they broke stereotypes. Because they tried to be themselves.
I have made this image so that, hopefully, someone may use it to remember this day, or to tell a friend about it. To come out, or to spread the message of tolerance. To promote education, or to reach out to someone in need.
Today is important, but it can't end here.
If we all come together, maybe we can make a better world for people who are transgender, genderqueer or any form of gender deviant. At the very least, maybe we can save a life. The life of a sibling.
Of a parent.
Of a child.
Of a relative.
Of a friend.
Of a lover.
