*Pink shirt day*

April 14th-SL's Pink Shirt Day - An Anti-Bullying Campaign. Show that you care and wear a pink shirt today!

pink Shirt day

From the notecard I received:
"Pink Shirt Day started in a Nova Scotia high school, where a 9th grade boy was being bullied over wearing a pink polo shirt to school. A couple of grade 12 boys decided to take a stand against the bullying and wear pink in sympathy for the boy who had been so mercilessly prodded at. They went to a local discount store and bought 50 pink shirts, and distributed them amongst the other boys in their high school. They stood up for their fellow classmate and against the bullies, and made a real difference in someone's life.

In a place like Second Life, Cyber Bullying runs rampant. In a virtual world where it is so easy to be anonymous and hide behind your pixels, many people find it the perfect environment to attack and belittle others. Unfortunately, this can lead to real life emotional distress, even to those who "disconnect" their Second Life and first life.

It is time that we all take a stand against bullying in all its forms. Why, in a community so small, should there be so much vitrol and mudslinging, when, if we band together, we become stronger?

This year, Pink Shirt Day falls on Wednesday, April 14th, and we are asking that anyone who share a passion for peace and a hatred for bullying, stand up and make a difference! "
