Today is #SpiritDay.
Did you know 82% of students report being verbally harassed in school because of their sexual orientation?
Did you know 64% of students report being verbally harassed in school because of their gender identity?
People all over the world wear purple on Spirit Day in a stand against bullying and to show their support for LGBTQ youth. Started on Tumblr and observed annually since 2010, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, and public figures wear purple, which symbolizes ‘spirit’ on the rainbow flag.
Getting involved is easy: just wear purple on October 17th and turn your blogs, Facebook and Twitter profile pics purple using the app for iPhone and Android to help create a world in which LGBT youth are celebrated and accepted for who they are. Upload photos of you wearing purple with the hashtag #SpiritDay to Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Google+!

Weeping eyes from crying every night
Tired of life and wishing she was dead
Curly hair and a smile
Because she knows she can overcome it
Full of life, knowing that she can do this.
Hair in a messy bun, goofy smile on her face
Because she’s genuinely laughing again.
Because she figured out she’s the only one who could save herself.
And she made it.
I thought this was going to end badly thank you people for turning that around.
