U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan posted this picture on Facebook today in honor of Spirit Day, when Americans wear purple to support speaking out against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth.

Duncan wrote:

I’m wearing my purple tie to support our LGBT youth on Spirit Day. Bullying is not a rite of passage & we’ve got to take a stand.
