Spirit Day 2012"Ultimately, I want Spirit Day to make just one person feel little bit better about his or herself, to feel safe enough in their own skin and to be proud of who they are" - Brittany McMillan
In memory of the young LGBT people who lost their lives to suicide, Brittany encouraged her friends to wear purple on a day in October -- a day that came to be known as Spirit Day. Since then, GLAAD has helped turn Spirit Day into a global event that inspires millions of individuals, celebrities, TV personalities, media outlets, companies and schools to wear purple in a stand against bullying.
While Spirit Day does focus on the LGBT community, I believe that it's anti-bullying message is relevant to every community. It only get's better, if we take the pledge to make it so.
Practice compassion and understanding, and treat others how you would like to be treated and we can make a difference.
Show your support for this anti-bullying me

#129: From Newest Deviations! IAs you read before some entries ago, I joined a contest by accident.
The aim is to go to the Newest Deviations page and leave some comments. If you want to take part, there's still time!
I don't think I'll win, because I'm really chilling out and trying to leave some nice feedback, but I think I'll continue this way even after the end of the challenge.
Anyway, I was not very fond of the "Newest Deviations", because I've never found anything really exciting. Only ponies, webcam photos and other stuff like this. Not that I'm against ponies, don't get me wrong, but it's nice to see cool pieces sometimes. I used to go to the "Popular 8 hours" to see new cool things, but with this contest I discovered that the "Newest Deviations" can be interesting as well.
Maybe I've paid more attention, maybe the new interface selects in a different way, I don't know. But heck! I've found LOADS of hidden treasures!
Afterall, even the most popular/cool/beautiful deviat

Before we get to that, just a quick announcement. Very soon (possibly even today) I'll be starting a series on my blog called "Five Minute Fractals". For the next 30 days, I will be creating one fractal a day within the time limit of 5 minutes. I may impose other restraints upon myself on a daily basis, and will include these along with the creative process and my thoughts of each fractal as they are posted. I'm inviting you to come along on this journey with me and share your thoughts on the different fractals that are created.
The runner up for challenge #150 is *wolfepaw.
