To hope that tolerance will

... defeat ignorance one day! This post will not be dedicated to beauty as it uses to be but there will be some related stuffes in the end. The enclosed vid is a tribute to Sophie Lancaster. It is meant to remind everyone that ignorance, stupidity and prejudices can kill.
This young lady was beaten to death a night in august 2007 while walking in a park by stupids youngs only because she was goth. By trying to protect her boyfriend, first attacked by the band, she felt into a coma and never woke up again. Her parents decided to create their fondation and raised funds to educate people to face difference and be more open-minded.

If you want to help a little or learn more about this drama you can have a look to the fondation's site (here) or if you are a beauty addict like me, you can buy a SOPHIE product on the Illamasqua website (it is a good way to give this brand a go if you have not tried it yet).
I think, I have a black pencil to buy now...

See ya :)
