A Special Proposal And Invitation
I would like to propose that we set aside February 20th as Tempest Smith Day.
On February 20, 2001, Tempest Smith died by her own hand. She was twelve years old. She died because she could not take any more of the daily religious harassment, bullying and torment from her classmates because she chose to follow the Wiccan path.
It is customary in some traditions, notably Christian, to honor a saint or a martyr by setting aside the day of their passing as the day to commemorate. Since her tormentors apparently thought that they were serving Jesus (whether or not he would have approved) , I believe it would be especially appropriate in this case.
As for what to do on Tempest Smith Day, simply take a little time to offer energies and prayers for her and so that this will never happen again.
