A huge thank you to everyone who wore purple on October 20th! The 2 sites that turned purple, that I know of, was DeviantART and Tumblr. Seeing those sites turn purple for this support really made me really happy. Although, there was a lot of hate going on for this. One person in particular on tumblr wrote:
"Wear purple tomorrow, not just for the fags."
When that person wrote that, I flipped out. My response was not calm at all:
"For the fags? Shame on you. I cannot believe you said that. That is so ******* low, I cannot believe you. That’s a major ******* insult. Very ******* mature. People like you are the reason people commit suicide. Ugh. I can go on and on but your not worth my time."
Yes, that wasn't the nicest thing to do, but seriously? People can be so rude to others and this person thinks she's all above everyone else. It really pissed me off. I blocked out the swears because I don't think this group needs that. That person defiantly went on my block list. It's people like this that have no care for others and it is really sad.
Anyways, on a brighter note, I was glad to see so many people wear purple and submit to this group. Anything else you want to still add, you can. I submitted this:
(if you want me to make it a stamp size, I'll try to)
So thank you everyone for making October 20th so special in memory of all those suicide victims.
(And whats this? We have a Director of Community Relations staff member watching this group. Everyone, welcome
Now, some sad news. Member,
recently passed away. I am not 100% sure on the reason, but it seems as if she took her own life from some trouble that she had been facing. This is why we had the spirit day, for things like this. Everyone, open up to someone if you are feeling troubled. It's such a sad thing when someone 20 years old passes away. Life is too short to deal with the shit that people give others. Everyone should know that things pass and there is always something that is going to happen that will make you happy, even if your going through a difficult time. If anyone ever feels like this, please, don't hesitate to talk to me. I am usually on all night long, and my time is Central (USA). So please, don't be afraid to talk to me if we have never talked before.
Please, don't choose suicide when things will get better. They will, and you know it. Bad things don't last forever.
