Day of Silence is today at my school. Be sure to take a moment to think about those voices that are silenced daily by bullying, harassment and oppression. The LGBTQ community has made great strides towards equality but the fight has not been won yet. The fight for equality will never be over until every person of any orientation does not have to hide who they are. There will be no such thing as coming out of the closet because hetero-normality will no longer be the expectation. The expectation will be to love one another. To love without obstacle. To love without fear. To love without ceasing. One day we will love like that.
do NOT let the day of rage info spread. national moment of silence 2014 was organized first as a peaceful vigil, not a protest, not a rally. calling it a day of rage will incite violence. anonymous co-opted existing locations and is blatantly ruining the efforts of black activists to create a peaceful nationwide event
Hey everyone, Remembrance Day is coming up on the 11th of November here. Just a friendly that if you are in a public place, such as the mall for example, if the announcement for a Moment of Silence comes on, please please PLEASE respect it by stopping and standing still where you are. Please do not make any noise, or whisper and giggle to your friends while the bugle is playing. Pay your respects. It’s only two minutes of your time.
Today, hundreds of thousands of students across the world will take a symbolic vow of silence to support the thousands of LGBT youth who are silenced by bullying every day.
Silence has always been a powerful tool for change. When silence is casual and individual, it easily goes unnoticed. But when it is deliberate, strategic and occurring en masse, it’s difficult to miss. One day without speaking is difficult; a lifetime of silencing by bullying is unthinkable. That difference becomes blatantly visible today.
Whether or not you’re participating in the Day of Silence today, it’s a valuable time to reflect on how each and every one of us can help make schools – and the world – safer for LGBT people. What are you doing today to help end the silence?
Today, people across the country are silent to commemorate the silence that LGBTQ teens are faced with every day. This silence is the product of prejudice, hate, discrimination, and harassment that happens in schools, and on the streets every day. In an effort to end the silence, I stand with them today to make our message even louder.
Day of silence is this Friday and it’ll be my first time participate in it( only because I never knew what day it was on) Its gonna be fun and a little challenging because I’m a really BIG talker. But…yeah its going to be lots of fun.

“Please understand my reasons for not speaking today. I am participating in the Day of Silence. This is a national student youth movement protesting the silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies in school. My deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by harassment, prejudice, and discrimination. I believe that ending the silence is the first step toward fighting these injustices. Think about the voices you are not hearing today. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO TO END THE SILENCE?” ~ Day of Silence 2014 (4/11)
The Last set of Valentines for the “Doctor Who Valentine Invasion” of 2014. These where actually meant to be shown ON Valentine’s Day but I spent the day with my family. So, I do apologize for being late with them. They are my personal favorites out of the bunch excluding the Dalek sets that where posted. Happy very belated Valentines Day!
