May 16th Wear Purple For Peace Day

Over the years purple has been associated with royalty. Now it’s associated with peace. It seems odd to me to use a color associated with a group that is generally associated with so much violence. Now like the color purple, I don’t wear it much but for the sake of peace I guess I would. If I can feel royal at the same time, all the better. I am not sure wearing any color will actually bring about peace. Unless it’s a blinding color that keeps the armies from seeing each other. White is now surrender, red promotes violence, yellow means you are a coward and purple is royalty. Why not, maybe we should wear a rainbow, but that has its means as well. Oh well, you can wear whatever color you want most of the time but today, wear purple.

How to celebrate – Wear something purple today. Pretend you are royalty. At least eat something purple.
