>Student's Experience with Day of Silence Held Thursday

>

My name is anonymous. I go to [Removed] High School and I ran a huge motion at my school today. I and the rest of the student body enjoyed a nice day at our annual performing arts festival. Here's what happened at the festival, my G.S.A club and I put our heads together and got a table at the festival just for Day Of Silence. We had over half the student body walk up to our "Booth" and say "Where do I sign my name?" and "Sign me up!" We had packets of information and we had about fifty copies to start with, but we had to make more copies through out the day. We had four books of GLSEN's speaking cards and we had to print off more from the website. Everyone wanted to take action and I had friends of mine say that they are being as silent as they can just for me! They have seen and heard my G.S.A and I talk about our haters and wish they could stop it immediately. The student body has stated that we are doing this for a good cause and will do whatever it takes to stop LBGTQ hate crimes.
