Today is Spirit Day, a day when people are encouraged to wear purple to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth.

But it's not just people wearing purple.

Technology such as Facebook, Tumblr, Yahoo, StumbleUpon, and Hulu are all going purple, too.

And purple-clad folks are flooding Twitter, posting photos of themselves using the hashtag #SpiritDay.

Are you talking with your children about the meaning of Spirit Day?
