Peace

Today is Pink Shirt Day, a day to bring awareness to the world about bullying and how it affect millions of people not only in the real world but in our fair virtual community, where pixel masks can hide us all. This Day started in Canada where a 9th grader was teased because he wore a pink polo shirt. He caused no harm to anyone but he was relentlessly teased. Having had enough of the bullying a group of 12th graders wore pink shirts and distributed them to fellow classmates in a stand of solidarity against the bullying. Today we recognize their efforts and try to bring awareness to this global problem. Many creators have joined in this effort, a few that come to mind, *BOOM*, LAP, Pig and Sn@tch. Please sport some pink today and become a beacon of peace.
