Two things.

I am wearing purple in support of bullying victims on 10/20... everyday really. I am a straight, happily married female, but have witnessed, sometimes firsthand, the abuse that goes on with homosexuals. Anyone that knows me, knows that I am VERY supportive of the gay community and will do anything within my power to be available for anyone who needs to talk....seriously, you need an ear, PLEASE e-mail me. I was bullied as a kid, sometimes called gay because I played with "boys toys". I don't care how people see me but when the word is used as a weapon, it's hurtful as a child even if the word is bowl...it's the power behind the words hurled at you... I encourage you to use your words wisely, it may cost someone their life. I was lucky because I was brought up in a household where my parents would have accepted if I was gay...I almost felt like I cheated someone along the way. Someone could have used that acceptance! I did need it when I came out of the broom closet to them, but still, Paganism is much easier to live with hiding rather than who you are and who you love.

Second but not diminished, I ran across a posting on Reddit and it hit my heart. I have two boys so I would like to encourage you to buy a piece of artwork or make a donation to Aidan.....he is a little boy struggling with Leukemia. Like many of us, his family is dealing with the US health care crisis so PLEASE help any way you can. I will proudly display one of Aidens pictures in my home.

I may not know you, but please know that you are loved. Don't be afraid to reach out to someone if you need it!
