TW: Mentions of anti-LGBT violence, though no details or descriptions.
Day four of the Week of Action and not much to report. I’m working on a masterpost of self-care resources that I hope to get up by Sunday – and I’m also working on a masterpost of cute animal pictures, just for those who need something nice on a bad day.
I had initially intended to create a list of links like this for each name on the “In Remembrance” list, but because this time of year tends to be difficult for me, I was not able to complete them all in time. It may or may not be on the agenda for next year’s Week. However, I did want to at least release the one I finished. If you want to learn more about Rebecca Wight’s story, I’ve attached some links to some articles and such below. A star indicates a video will open automatically:
Edit 2014: Removed for misuse, because apparently I cannot post anything about Rebecca’s story without a certain individual trying to exploit it and her. Sorry! See the “Who We Are Not – A Warning” tab for more information.
Thursday’s theme was green, which symbolizes nature. Of the 189 people on the WoA 2014 list, there were twenty-seven I felt were best represented by the color green and the theme of nature. Their names are below. If you have a few minutes, select a few whose names stand out to do and do some research into their stories (a star by their name indicates that a loved one has spoken about them here.) Who were they? What happened to them?
