The Vancouver Sun newspaper states that tomorrow is "Anti-bullying day", and Education Minister Shirley Bond, is encouraging everyone to wear pink for the occasion.
"As part of the awareness campaign, Bond also urged people across the province to wear pink Wednesday as a way of showing support for anti-bullying. She said the idea of wearing pink began in eastern Canada after a child was bullied for wearing a pink T-shirt to school.
"The next day two students said, 'You know what? We're going to show support for this student,' and they showed up wearing pink, and it just multiplied," she said."
So, is anyone else here going to show their support?! I think we should all get behind this idea!

I mean...just wear a pink shirt or pink earings or something! yay! for spreading the knowledge and power of anti bullying! =]

I agree with Stephanief987 about the color.
I hadnt heard of this at all,but my friend whos a Member Of the GSA [[gay straight alliance]] knew all about it,I guess The whole group is doing this as well.
I plan to wear my pink tee,too.
I don't think I have any pink in my warddrobe...but if I do, I'll show up to my meeting in it.
That will probably take it off topic for 20 minutes though, but why not? :)
