The Day of Silence

Friday is the Day of Silence. (Click that link for more info.) You don't talk at school/work/wherever. All day. You would be my favorite person ever if you did this. I'm doing it and from what it sounds like, half of my school is as well. Gay rights is really something that people should stand up for. Do it if you're straight or gay or trans or a unicorn.

Not cool, guys. Gotta stop the hate.
Very uncool still.
I think this needs to be fixed.
Pretty embarrassed to live in a state whose color means zero.
Come on, guys. Basic human rights. Stop the hate.

If you want to check out a cool website that is like FCKH8!, click on those words. Though as a warning, potty words. But I love it because it's amazing.

I know I have over one hundred and fifty followers now, so if any of you guys want to comment with your position on this and maybe say if you're going to do this, please do. I'll be commenting back. If you're a jerk, I'll be sure to delete your comment.

Wow, I don't know if I can stay quiet at work...especially when I have to go on the front desk and help students ;) Pity about that whole customer service role thing. But this is such a great cause, and I can already imagine how terribly hard it would be for me to actually not talk for a whole day.

Such an important cause. One I fully support. I'll be participating as best I can.

Ciara said...

Me not talk. Wow, that is a challenge. :)

I'm a new follower from the A-Z challenge. :)

I won't be able to stay silent, but I will pray really hard. Blessings, Joanne

Thank you for this post. My post will also be about the Day of Silence. I've participated in it for the past four years and I love the learning that comes from it.

It breaks my heart how there's so much hatred in this world. There's good in it, too, but I think it takes a part of everyone to make it all work!

Happy Friday!

Good on you for standing up for something you believe in. I've come across this too late, but I'm wholeheartedly behind any positive action to reduce discrimination in our world. Hope the day was a success.

Nice job

Ella said...

Yes, I so agree, "Let's stop the hate"! Great message~

Teresa said...

great post my best friends are gay and I hear about how hard things are for them. They are the greatest people I know and they are very kind and not judgemental. Many people could learn a thing or two from them i know I have

Whoops, I didn't know about this - and had a driving lesson with my brother yesterday, which would have been hard to do in silence. But it's a good thought.

I'm starting up a 'Critiquing Crusaders' program, where participants in the Second Crusade can find other writers to exchange critiques with or form critiquing circles. If you're interested, come by The Kelworth Files to check it out!

Gotta agree with you. But at least my state is at five... anywho, keep it up :)
