This a a really touching video by Savannah Robinson singing beautiful by Christina Aguilera. It starts off with Anderson Cooper and several kids giving their 2 cents on an issue that is Not Cool but widespread amongst kids. Are you a kid that is getting bullied in school for being different? It does get better but you shouldn’t have to deal with it on a daily basis at school where you’re suppose to be there to learn. Tell your teachers!! Are they not listening?

Millions of Americans wear purple on Spirit Day as a sign of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth and to speak out against bullying. Spirit Day was started in 2010 by teenager Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives. Observed annually on October 20, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, media professionals and celebrities wear purple, which symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag. Getting involved is easy — participants are asked to simply “go purple” on October 20 as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are.
