All through my Jr. High and High School years, all of my teachers always pounded into our minds to not procrastinate. I never really took that to heart and I wish I had! I always put things off until the very last second, then I get all sorts of stressed out about everything I have to get done in a tiny period of time. It really is no fun for anyone! Learn now and make a habbit of forcing yourself to do things early, it will make life so much easier.
Well for my first post, I wanted to get the word out about Erase Hate Day. My friend posted this on his Facebook wall and I think it is an awesome thing to support.
Erase Hate Day is a day created in honor of Matthew Shepard, who, on October 7th, 1998 was tied to a split-rail fence and beaten to death by two men simply because he was a homosexual. Help spread the word that hate gets us nowhere! All over, spread love and peace and let everyone know that we can make the world a better place if we just ERASE THE HATE!
WEAR PURPLE AND WRITE ERASE HATE ON YOUR ARMS TO SPREAD OUR MESSAGE. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
INVITE ALL YOUR FRIENDS! POST THIS ON YOUR WALL! TELL YOUR SCHOOL! GET EVERYONE INVOLVED! SPREAD THE WORD AND ERASE HATE!
Everyone deserves love no matter your race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, etc. Help us spread the word that HATE IS NOT OKAY.
