Yesterday was #SpiritDay so we went purple to take a stand against bullying and to support LGBTQ youth. My message was "Be An Ally".
There are many ways to Be An Ally
Carlos Meza put it much more eloquently than I ever could, so I'll leave it to him to explain one way to be there for our LGBTQ+ community "As an ally, it’s not your job to be a therapist or counselor. But it is your job to listen to the LGBTQ+ people in your life, to ask them how they’re doing, to be aware that they may have gone through (and might still be going through) some things you don’t understand, and offer support when you can.
Keeping your heart open and an eye out for your LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters after the pride parties have ended and court cameras have turned off will go a lot further than votes or parade posters will ever do." #ChooseKindness #takeastand #siren
