For those found too late
For those who felt unloved in life
For those who life hurt more than they could bear
For those taken from us too soon
For every tear from every eye of those left behind
We remember.

This comment of mine was transposed from another transgender website that I am active on---

After seeing the movie " A Girl Like Me, The Gwen Araujo Story ", maybe you can see now the importance of observing and celebrating as a holiday Transgender Day of Remembrance, Saavik. I used to think that putting a bullet in my head was the best way to deal with being a transgender person. Now I know how wrong I was to think that way. As Gwen was being killed, and as she fell asleep in death, two more transgender persons would come out of the closet and begin living their lives as their correct gender of adult females. It's interesting to think that you and I could or would be the two that would come out of the closet, desist from putting a bullet in my head, or desist from dangerous living practices because one " fears no death ", and begin living as authentic persons as their correct gender out in public, regardless of family's or society's viewpoint or condemnation. This now is part of the reason for me to HAVE TO continue living, to live for those transgender people who have died and can no longer present themselves out in public as their correct gender. This is the essence of the spirit of Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Sooner or later, probably sooner in my case because I am an old bugger, you and I will be dead due to 'whatever' circumstances. You know what ? Four more transgender people will be motivated to come out of the closet and begin living their life as their correct gender, regardless of the cost of money, family, friends, work, society, or personal issues. That is what keeps me going, that is why I think it important to go out in public dressed as your correct gender regardless of society's view, that is why I think it important to do that very thing in order to observe Transgender Day of Remembrance. I hope you and others come to appreciate that, too.

YES, WE REMEMBER !!! COME EVERY SINGLE NOVEMBER, ACTUALLY EVERY SINGLE DAY, WE REMEMBER !!!
