Are you Aware?

I’m sure you all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and we see loads of pink ribbons.  But did you also know that it’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the United States as well? The color for Domestic Violence Awareness is purple.  So if you see any purple ribbons, that’s what they stand for.

Awareness

But….  Did you know about the White ribbon?  The White Ribbon Campaign  (This is a Canadian link, but their are versions of it all around the world!) It’s MEN’s Awareness in ending domestic violence against women.

Together as human beings we make SL a truly international experience, this gives us an opportunity to share, learn, and educate each other about social issues that effect all people on the planet.  Education truly is power, and I hope of you will wear a little purple to spread the word.  Violence and abuse against anyone is intolerable.  Together, we can make a stand, spread the word, and let abusers know that it is not ok and not acceptable.
