"You might have noticed that deviantART is wearing purple today, as October 20, 2010 marks Spirit Day -- an event to honor teens who have lost their lives to anti-LGBT bullying.
While this specific type of bullying has received a lot of media attention as of late, we'd like to bring to light how bullying is a wide-spread problem that impacts everyone -- regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, ethnicity, race, or profession. And the recent surge of teen suicides associated with bullying can't be ignored or overlooked."
Woo. I'm loved. :3 I totally want to draw this photo... My style.. (BTWWW. If I do, I'd totally credit you for original idea btw so no worries.. haha. ) Anyways. Its so great it makes me want to go murder a chicken D: ..
I like purple....I was bullied as a kid....I thought about killing myself once or twice....I always found a reason not to. Thankfully I haven't been bullied since I started High School so I haven't thought about it in years....I'm glad I was able to get past it and have the chance to figure out what I want to do for the world. I hope others are able to do the same. Bullies never truely get anywhere in life and the people who work hard and help others are the ones that truely achieve, that's what I took away from it and I hope that other people who are or were bullied get the same idea.
