***

As I say basically every year: I ask that you at least take a moment out of your day to just reflect on this... or if you know someone (besides me) who is transgender, just give them a hug or tell them you're there for them... or if YOU are transgender, just be strong, love yourself, and don't be afraid of who you are.

That day is pretty much a reminder that I could be murdered at any time.

Well, I don't want to sound like an asshole or anything; but I think these sorts of days are sort of.. .Wrong or un-needed.
Not that I have anything against transgender people, or anyone, but why not just have it as a day for people murdered/killed? Not just one group, gender, age, race, or whatever.. But as you said, one murder is too much. 

But rather recently, there was something on Google; as "International day for violence against women" or something; it was beyond me of why they didn't just have it as "International day against violence". It just bothers me how something can't be grouped to be more collective, then singular.

I'm sure there's something for violence in general. Remembering lost lives isn't unneeded and certainly not wrong

...reading this and knowing the absolute travesty that occurred...it makes me want to cry...for them and all before them that were murdered. And as others have mentioned...it's things like this that make me hesitant to tell anyone...I only know a small handful of people IRL that know...

This is always a hard day to get through; I've cried three other times already, and this is already making me sniffle again.  Why there's so much hate...it's just staggering.  TO those who are gone, we'll always miss you.  To those still here, please, be careful and don't let yourself become another one of these statistics...we need you all here.

This is sad...anytime a fellow human is killed isn't good but when people are just trying to live their lives the way they want...that can somehow make it worse.

Uhg. This is so upsetting... I didn't know this was so... like this.

And the way people were killed... just imagining being in that situation, I don't know how anyone could do that, no matter how vastly different your views. Because really, it's not something that's hurting anyone at all, so why is it so 'horrible' people feel like killing is totally OK. What about what those people could have contributed to the world?

Doesn't this scare you? I don't understand how you can be so open and strong against this kind of information...

Wait, were they killed BECAUSE they were transgendered or were they transgendered and JUST HAPPEN to be murdered?

Either way I'd say it is a bad thing if someone is murdered.

We should probably also make mention of the countless more who committed suicide...

I wanted to do something for today, but the idea of drawing for a mass funeral is.....soul-crushingly depressing...

Sorry... :depressed:

It's sad that this kind of discrimination and savagery still goes on in the world.

Here's hoping it'll disappear and everyone can be open about themselves without fear.

mind if i share a link to this on fb? to show people how serious it can get 
people have to accept that there is no sutch things as "normal" or "straight from the book" 
there will always be exeptions in everycase
most transgenders have the accept that they are different
but i think others need to accept it too

god bless all of us, exept the murders :P
