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.

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.
...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.
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...
