Geek Pride Day is Now

Have yourself a Geeky, happy lifetime...
Let your heart be light
From now on those bullies
Will have no fight

Have yourself a Geeky, happy lifetime...
to your inner nerd...
Be true.
Express your thoughts
and let
Your nerdy dreams
Shine through.

Here we are as
In clone-war days,
Happy rebel days of yore,
Faithful droids who are true to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the web all
nerds gather together
To take a Geeky vow,
The world will see us
Take our triumphant bow!

We'll have our Geeky, happy lifetime NOW!

For Katie Goldman and every child that has to fight for their right to be themselves.

(Sung to the tune of: "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," with apologies to my friend Hugh Martin, and Ralph Blane.)

Thank you to "Random" for posting about Katie, and about Geek Pride Day. Here at Chickenblog, we take pride in Geeks everyday.

Katie's story makes me so mad, that she was made to feel bad about who she is. I am a bit of a geek myself, and I have a fondness for geeks. Once I told my neighbor her husband was a bit of a nerd, meaning it as a compliment... and she got mad at me! I tried for years to convince her that that was a good thing!

Yay Natalie - great song! I hadn't heard about Katie - what a feeling, to have the world reach out and offer reassurance, and affirmation. I can only imagine what a difference it will make to her life, and to the lives of all the rest of us who in one way or another didn't fit in. Why is it so hard for us to let each other be who we are?!@#!!

Yay for Geeks!

Woo-hoo! Hurray for each and every individual, and for each individual who's free to be her- or himself, and who supports that right for everyone else.

It always starts with *me.*
