Transgender Day of Remembrance - 2021
« on: November 20, 2021, 04:43:47 am »
Today is November 20, 2021.

It is also the Transgender Day of Remembrance. This is the day we take a few monents to stop and to mourn those who we have lost this past year, and work towards reducing this number in the next.

More than just a solemn few moments, we need to do something for those who are still at risk.

For myself, I will be at the Ft Lauderdale Pride festivities on the beach. The festivities include all people under the LGBTQ umbrella. I will be in the Trans Pride tent. I will not be doing much, just being helpful as needed, meeting the public and answering questions that they may have.  I am going to publicly be an example that we are just normal people and that there is nothing to be afraid of from people like me.

The weather is not promising, as we have a 60% chance of rain. Even if it does rain, it will not dampen my spirits.

Take care and everybody, just take a moment to remember.  :-* :'(

Well done Rakel. I put some slides together about the stats and what they really mean which I posted at work. It’s a very sobering day

Please, never forget them.

Hugging them in my mind.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Such a great idea! I will give that some thought for next year...
