On Thursday, October 17, several LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) organizations and individuals celebrated Spirit Day, which asks people to take a stand against bullying and show support for LGBT youth by wearing the color purple. NBC's "Days of our Lives" took a stand and showed its support as cast members donned purple shirts, jackets and even ties.
