Transgender Day of Remembrace

Credit:  http://fc01.deviantart.net

Well, another day has come -- but not just another day.  For those of you who aren't aware of it, this is Transgender Day of Remembrance.  It is an important day.  Especially for those who have lost a friend or loved one through violence, it is a sad day, an angry day.  Even for those who haven't suffered such a loss, it is a day which you are acutely aware a family or loved one could be taken away.

So, what am I trying to accomplish by remembering the Transgender Day of Remembrance?  Three things:

  • To get the names of these vultures out there, so they will be sent to jail NOW,
  • To better inform the general public.
  • Remember.  Remember, remember, remember.
If I accomplish this, I will be happy.

Here are the names:
