From :iconmoonbeam13:'s journal:

"April 16 is the annual Day of Silence, a student-led day of action when concerned students, from middle school to college, take some form of a vow of silence to bring attention to the name-calling, bullying and harassment -- in effect, the silencing -- experienced by LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) students and their allies.


Participants hand out cards to explain why they aren't speaking and this year it reads:


Please understand my reasons for not speaking today. I am participating in the Day of Silence (DOS), a national youth movement bringing attention to the silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies. My deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by anti-LGBT bullying, name-calling and harassment. I believe that ending the silence is the first step toward building awareness and making a commitment to address these injustices. Think about the voices you are not hearing today.

What are you going to do to end the Silence?


While this is a youth movement and many of our deviants may fall in this age group - I encourage and implore EVERYONE to get involved and take a stand against the silence."
