National Day of SilenceCategory: (general)
Sunday, 31 January 2010
07:21:48 AM (GMT)

If you are interested please read ahead.

"The 2010 Day of Silence will be held on Friday, April 16th.

The national focus of the Day of Silence is specific to ending bullying and
harassment of students whether they be lesbians/gays/bisexuals/transsexuals(LGBT) or
supporters, particularly physical violence and verbal threats.

As with most political actions, there is passionate ongoing debate as to the specific
strategies and goals. Organizers encourage Day of Silence participants to use the
national template, but do support variation among participating groups. While some
organizers focus the mission statement of their Day of Silence to ending
institutionalized discrimination, others decide to make their message more

Join the cause, take a stand, and defend those who are beaten physically and mentally
by discrimination! (:"

So, we need TONS of people.
Even if it's one person.
One person can begin to change something else.

For you people who believe these things go against the bible, I wrote this a bit
ago: "Everyone being a child of God, has NO right to judge people based on
what they believe. God is the only one with the right to judge, and when the time
comes he will do so. Stop judging people. You hurt them MORE than you think. This
judgement is what STEERS people from God to begin with. Love thy neighbor. Treat
others how you want to be treated."

If you HAVE a Facebook, say you're attending.
And PLEASE tell people, follow through. 
Let people know you CARE about them, and that they aren't hated by everyone.
PLEASE. Participate.

it might sound self-explanatory..but a little explanation would be
good. like silence? waht do you mean? a moment of silence? all day
without talking? from 8 am to 5 pm or 24 hrs or what?

Ideally, it would be the whole day.
But if it's impossible, as long as you can.

thats actually pretty easy for me, its not uncommon for me to go a
whole day without even saying anything out loud even to myself..cause
i live alone (whenhelliki isnt here)...though i do sometimes address
the cat, yell at the tv...

or say "fuck me" randomly when something goes awry

april is a ways off...put another remind a day or two before

I for one think it's great because I happen to be bisexual but i have
told noone except ONE person on facebook and my bi cousin. I don't
tell anyone else because I'm afraid to I can't bring myself to do it
and then my friends will be disgusted and desert me in the middle of
the year. I'd be an outcast. People would hate me because I like boys
and girls. I'd have noone to count on. And the worst part is, I might
have to keep it a secret for THE REST OF MY LIFE I do know that I can
count on the National Day of Silence but noone at my school will do it
I bet and if I mention it to them they WILL NOT understand and
probably resort in the fact that i am one of THOSE people categorize
you for being you and I for one don't think that's a fair way of
judging people at all. In my girls inc group we were doing a servey
and it said which of the following are you inerested in boys girls or
boys and girls? and ofcourse everyone said ew at the last two and put
boys. I also did but I feel that I should've been honest. I feel i am
alone when infact I AM NOT I am ONE OF A KIND and I don't wanna keep a
huge chunk of myself hidden from people everyday

Then you shouldn't hide it. If your friends TRULY love you and care,
they should respect the way you are.
You should ALSO explain that to them. If they react in a negative way.
You probably didn't need them as friends to begin with.
Be true to your heart.

I support gays/bisexual/lesbians...etc?

But I don't understand how a day of silence, helps stop them from
getting bullied?
‹♥lexxie♥츄~› says:   31 January 2010   354223  
It's just to help SPREAD the word. When you explain it, it may catch
You eventually HAVE to tell people the reason for you being silent. 
‹♥Kirsche♥› says:   31 January 2010   590348  
OOH...I get it now.
