I Support Beeing Who You Are by TeaPhotography I Support Beeing Who You Are by TeaPhotography
I support "beeing" who you are...

I support being exactly WHO you are,
without fear of retribution in the work place
or on any school campus in the USA.
I support this, for ANYWHERE in the world, too, of course.
:earth: :peace: :heart:

I support ANTI-bullying from anyone who would seek to do harm through physical and/or mental means that would result in any sort of painful outcomes.

As the original dA News Article HERE:
:bulletpurple: [link]
states, this particular type of Bullying Awareness was born from LGBT-Bullying, and those who have lost their lives due to the chronic level of such bullying. :heart:
But as also the original News Article states, "bullying is a wide-spread problem that impacts everyone-"

I support the freedom to be yourself, and be able to move about as freely as possible, [such as the bee in the image above] and do the things you need and want to in life, without such dire worry, pain, and miserable strife from the society that we live in, because of, but NOT limited to:

age, race, religion, gender, ethnicity, physical disabilities, profession, socio-economic class, physical appearance.

Unfortunately, we live in a society where we, [kids mostly, but ALSO adults!] are STILL teased, taunted, and tortured to varying and HUGE degrees, to extents that are dangerous, to the point where the various types of abuse have resulted in death.

The top of my Profile Page says, and has said for a long time, "Passion for Compassion" but my whole motto is:
"I Have a Passion for Compassion"... and this is a very sincere and genuine truth.

Most of the quotes in my ID Box have been the same for a long time, because I don't feel the need to change them. They further reflect my views on Compassion...

However the very last one I listed there, is very specifically related to this issue here and this is it:

"I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head all the time."
~John Coffey in The Green Mile

Great movie, BEST line in it, and I can never seem to stop relating to it.

I am happy and proud to say that I am part of an online group here at deviantART who is willing to be supportive of something so extremely important as an issue such as this.
:aww: :w00t: :heart: :love:

And really it's about human decency, its care and compassion.

:thanks: Thank you dA for being an integral part of spreading this much needed AWARENESS! I support SPIRIT DAY! :love:


[NOTE: I just wanted to say, in advance, how especially grateful for anyone's :+fav: I may receive for this image. :thanks::aww::rose: I am honoured that you would enjoy or think well enough of my work here, to :+fav: it. :nod: So I thank you :thanks: profusely, and from the bottom of my heart :heart: . And because I do realize time constraints all too well, I understand, if you are unable to also leave a comment. :aww: However, whichever you may do, [or even both! :omg: ] I genuinely appreciate it beyond measure. I need you to know this now, in case I'm not capable of doing individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, which I've not been capable, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
:love: And even if you just came to view! :eyes: I am also very HAPPY :D for this! :w00t: ]

awesome stuff tea ^_^ did you get my bday message with a YT link the other day?
CandiceDionysus Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2010   General Artist
Right on, Tea! I completely agree! People should be free to like what they want, wear what they want, have piercings if they want, tattoos; we should be free to like what we want, without fear of ridicule, comics and music and novels and movies and television shows and internet memes. Personal freedoms are too often spat on by others. But I was raised to believe that if people don't love you for who and what you are, then they shouldn't be in your life and their opinions are worthless. Go mom, lol.

Wonderful image for such a great cause! I spent years growing up being bullied and I do everything I can to stop it whenever I see it whether I know the person or not. Bullying is one of the worst things people can go through and is so painful to all. This is a wonderful cause and so glad to see others feel the same :hug:

I can't explain how beautiful this picture truley is. I love it though. I'm really into the spirit for the bullying thing here on DA, I've been wearing my purple shirt ;p ^^ I've seen a few friemds go through bullying in life and I've helped some of them with it and make the right choices to stay away from suicide when they thought that was the only other way out. I was bullyied when I was younger too and had even thought of such actions myself but never attempted because of my friends, I couldn't do that to them and my family.

I really like this picture though and for some reason I can't explain why. Beautiful shot as alwaysTea :heart:
TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2010  Professional General Artist
Wow, thank you SOO much! :D This means a lot to me, because this DAY and what it seeks to represent for "always" means SO MUCH to me, too! :nod:

When I first saw Spirit Day and "wearing purple" here on dA, I got really "into it" too! I was very happy and excited that dA would be a very open and active supporter of this cause!!! :heart::love:
YAY dA! :w00t:

Thank you for sharing a little about the friends you've seen and helped, and even a bit about yourself... :hug:
And I'm glad that you did not/would not go through with any of such actions... that you knew and KNOW that you could not do that to your friends and family... you must feel those connections strong enough, and THAT is what is important and must be fostered for others who also get bullied- more positive connections with people who can give a base support. sigh...

Anyway, I know I am sooo glad you are HERE for TONS of reasons, and to share your support and strength with others. :hug:'s
Kearbear2007 Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2010
You're welcome ^^
And no problem for sharing <3

Friends and family are on the top of my list for life. Anything happenes to anyone I'm right there when they need me rather it being physiclly there or just on the phone, they can always count on me no matter what and I'm happy they can ^^ I can count on them too.

Very beautiful picture for a beautiful description and an awesome day. DA is the only website I know which wears this symbolic purple, so I'm happy to be a part of this community.

Good job again, Tea ! :)
TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2010  Professional General Artist
Why thank you so very much. It means especially MUCH to me, as this "DAY" and everything it is about and seeks to represent, means a lot to me, too. :hug:

I kind of thought dA, might be the only website that "wears purple" but I don't frequent any others. I am happy to be a part of this community, too. I chose wisely "back when" ;)

Thanks again, I SOOO appreciate it! :heart:
Dare2a Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh and, the Green Line is also an awesome movie, which message is gold, to me.
