RP--Will you be in purple Wednesday?

Reese’s Pieces � Blog Archive � Will you be in purple Wednesday?:

"After the tragic deaths of nearly a dozen teens in the past month following relentless anti-LGBT bullying, a few kids on Facebook have banded together to send a message to the world that the bullycides must stop, and that there is indeed hope.

They asked that folks who support their effort to end the bullycides wear purple on Wednesday. They got quite a response.

Their facebook event, “R.I.P. ;; In memory of the recent suicides due to gay abuse, wear purple,” has nearly 1.5 million attendees, 300,000 maybes, and 3 million waiting for reply. Imagine the power of 5 million Americans wearing purple tomorrow in solidarity with kids that feel isolated, alone, tormented and abused."
