Today is Purple Day!

I first heard about purple day on Designer Jots which then inspired me to look it up on the internet. The premise is that if you wear purple today it is to inspire people to learn first aid for seizures and be aware of epilepsy. Even though over 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy I don't know a single one of them. But one time in high school during a basketball game a girl got knocked down and had a seizure and it was pretty freaky.

I've taken first aid classes before and I feel like I remember what to do, but to be sure I'll ask the school nurse next week.

P.S. This purple picture is by pesare on deviantART.
