Introspective emo thoughts and Spirit Day
I have no real cause, maybe no real right to feel the way I do. I'm alive, I'm traveling at the moment, my dream of being published is in the process of coming to life, I have people who care about me even though I don't feel I can approach anyone with my loneliness and emo-thoughts right now. I have it made in the shade but my heart is screaming for more. This is my bad time of year so I guess just holding it together is something, and that's what I feel I'm doing - just barely holding it together.
Please read and support the following - today is an important day.
What is Spirit Day? (borrowed from Amara)
Millions of Americans wear purple on Spirit Day as a sign of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth and to speak out against bullying. Spirit Day was started in 2010 by teenager Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives. Observed annually on October 20, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, media professionals and celebrities wear purple, which symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag. Getting involved is easy -- participants are asked to simply "go purple" on October 20 as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are.
