I feel like there was a lot more... for lack of a better word, awareness, about Self-Injury Awareness Day last year -- with fox1013's post being linked to by every third LJer and every other LJer posting the colorbar (which i don't seem to be able to find a link to now).
Last year my school had a myths vs. facts panel which i was unfortunately unable to go to, but i didn't see anything this year. I want to, like, *do* something, but i don't know what.
It's interesting seeing all the comments on entries, of people saying they didn't realize how prevalent it was or it had never made sense to them until they read a particular person's story and so on. I think maybe that's an important first step, of just raising awareness about the issue (and the day, after all, is named for awareness). I'm a big proponent of the whole "being a witness with your life" thing -- helping to change people's minds about Christians/pagans/pro-lifers/pro-choicer
This still doesn't particularly help me with my desire to *do* something -- not that i have any sort of free time anyhow, of course. ::sighs and returns to homework::
