Tomorrow, October 25th, is Purple Thursday.
Do you know what that is?
Do you know how important and helpful to millions of people it might be for you simply to wear the color purple tomorrow?
It’s about domestic violence awareness and prevention. It’s a public statement that says “No more!”
My awareness about this terrible blight on our homes and entire culture has grown hugely in recent years, and this month it grew a bit more via this found wisdom in a county library display:
Shall we take a stand? Shall we, just quietly and individually, accept this invitation from the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence:
“Make a fashion statement that really says something: wear something purple on Thursday, October 25th to honor victims and support survivors of domestic violence! This year marks the 7th annual observance of Purple Thursday, the awareness day launched by the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence that’s now gone national with Purple Thursday observances in Massachusetts, New York and Oklahoma…”
I’m wearing purple tomorrow, how about you?
