Lest We Forget (#TDOR)

Today is November 20, 2011. Today, we set aside to remember our Transgendered brothers and sisters who were the targets of violence simply for being themselves. We remember them in spite of the efforts to forget them; to erase them from existence.

We remember in defiance of hate and bigotry. In defiance of ignorance and fear.

We remember. And we mourn.

We mourn the loss of so many wonderful people who’s lives were so tragically and brutally cut short by murderers. Small minded people who fear what they don’t understand and hate what they fear.

We remember, lest we forget.

For the Fallen

Visit International Transgender Day of Remembrance for more information and a list of the slain.

    Many people believe that the next generation is The One. You know, where they are accepting of all individuals no matter what… no matter race, gender, sexual preference or anything. But I doubt it. There are too many kids committing suicide because of their peers. They don’t accept anything and they never will. People just suck.

      Ever the cynic, eh Skatha? *chuckles* I don’t necessarily disagree with your statement. However, I choose to believe that our society will, one day long in the future yet, we will move past this base desire to demean others for our own selfish ends.

      We have to get rid of religion, first. Religion is the true evil that holds all societal development back. Once we clear that evil away, this society can truly grow as it should have in the first place.

      As always, thanks for commenting.
