This is a copy of a post I’ve made elsewhere, it has nothing to do with nails, skin care, fake tans, waxing or even hair.
It has everything to do with something so much more important then all of that. Saving lives!!
12th October 1998.
That should have been the day the world took notice.
That should have been the day people realised something needed to be done.
That should have been the day it started to change.
19th September 2010. Seth Walsh hanged himself at just 13.
22nd September 2010. Tyler Clementi, an 18 year old gay man kills himself because of bullying.
23rd September 2010. 13 year old Asher Brown killed himself because of gay bullying.
29th September 2010. 19 year old Raymond Chase committed suicide.
This has to stop!
Matt Shepard died on the 12th October 1998, that crime led to the creation of The Laramie Project. Why isn’t it a required text in every school in our nation? It talks about death, crime, hate, understanding, tolerance, being gay, consequences … it is so much more then just a story. It is history that should never be repeated!
I think it is amazing that so many are asking for things to change. So many friends have shared the emotional appeal from Ellen on her TV show to start that change. But we need to do more … we need to take action! The problem is that we don’t know what to do, we don’t know how to take action.
So please, someone with the influence, the power, the money, the position, please tell us what to do! How can we stop this?
