What does Purple Day mean?
It means somebody cares. Lots and lots of somebodies.
Cassidy Megan started Purple Day for Epilepsy when she was nine years old.
Now, it is a world-wide way to show support for people with epilepsy.
Is this a big deal?
Rose called last night to remind us to wear purple today.
She is so excited about monuments all over the world being lit up in purple. She named many of them over the phone when she called over the weekend.
“One hundred countries are in it.” she said last night on the phone.
What does this mean to Rose?
During her childhood years she was the only person she knew with seizures.
Now, she knows she is not alone.
Fifty million people have epilepsy.
And MILLIONS more will wear purple today
and light up their cities in purple to show support.
WEAR PURPLE PEOPLE!
