For the first time ever, my school will be participating in the National Day of Silence. If you don’t already know what this is, it is a day where students all over the country take a vow of silence for a whole day to protest the bullying and harassment of LGBT students. This is also to support the LGBT students in their school that are silent about their true selves every single day and try to make them feel comfortable in school.
I am so excited that my school is allowing us to participate in this peaceful protest and is reaching out to students that are afraid to be themselves. Tomorrow students who choose to participate wear a badge on their uniform to tell people that they are being silent and those who can’t be silent will be able to get a wristband to show their support.
So to stay true to my vow of silence I will not be blogging tomorrow and will see all of ya’ll (I really don’t think I can avoid saying ya’ll anymore) on Saturday.
If you are interested getting your school involved with this cause or want more information on the National Day of Silence visit their website.
Are you participating tomorrow? Does your school allow it?
