Purple

The Gay and Lesbian community has dedicated the color purple on this day to stop the bullying in schools. Lea wore purple today. I asked her why she was wearing that color and she told me that it was to show her support in the efforts to stop bullying in school against gay students. I told her that being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, we don't choose to live that type of life style. She had no idea. I then explained why and it made since to her. I also said that because others choose to be gay doesn't mean we shouldn't be their friends. Our Heavenly Father loves them just as much as he loves each one of use.
I am proud of Lea for showing support in a cause that is really important. No matter who is bullying who, it needs to stop. This is of the things I love about my Lea. She has a good head on her shoulders. She knows right from wrong, and she is a friend I would love to have because she supports them in anyway she can. Way to go Lea. Love ya lots.
