Going Purple for Spirit Day

We're marking Spirit Day 2012 at the White House.

Spirit Day -- the celebration to honor and support young people who have been victims of bullying -- is now three years old.

It has become a day when people the world over rally for LGBT community and speak out against the bullying of LGBT teens.

And this year, the White House is once again going purple online. You can check out our Twitter feed or our Facebook page to see how we're marking the day -- and take part by making your social networking icon purple or adding a statement of support.
