Today my brother got into the car after school with a button on his jacket. It read “Be careful who you hate, because it may be someone you love”. It threw me off, I wasn’t entirely sure as to why he was wearing the button. I know it’s GLBTQ Week and all of that good stuff but I was still confused. I asked him about it and he told me today was The Day of Silence. He told me that quite a few students including himself participated.
Now, I’m not one to get excited over silly little things but seeing him supporting me made me feel so much better about myself. He told me his girlfriend was also participating in it. To those of you who aren’t LGBT please don’t forget that you CAN support. You can participate and make people feel comfortable in their own skin. If you have a family member or a friend who is LGBT make sure you show that you’re going to stand right there with them.
I know this is kind of a pointless post, however I just wanted to share what made my day so much better.
