Bringing Awareness - Stop the Bullying and Judging!

I was contacted by a fellow Etsy Shop Owner today - Christine by Hand - and was told one of my jewelry items - my Faceted Purple Amethyst Earrings - had been featured in her Etsy Treasury today.  

She found out that someone on Facebook had designated today as "Wear Purple Day" in order "to bring awareness to, and put an end to intolerance in honor of the 6 people who commited suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse at home and in schools" and she created an Etsy Treasury to help bring awareness to this crisis. She's also posted this to her blog and you can read about it here!

I was very honored to be included in her Etsy Treasury (lots of great iems - check out all the shops please!) but most of all I was touched by the reason she put the Etsy Treasury together and feel that this is such a great way to honor those who's lives weren't lived to their fullest.

I believe by bringing awareness to why bullying and judging others is such an unhealthy way of acting, thinking and living, that it will help us all to learn how to practice tollerance and help us focus on making ourselves better people.  We need to STOP the bullying and bring awareness of how crippling these type of actions and thinking are to our society (and our world). 

Thanks Christine for reminding us to be aware, to practice tollerance and to "Love One Another".

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Acceptance!!
Cheers,
