From Wikipedia: (Day of Silence)
The Day of Silence is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network’s (GLSEN) annual day of action to protest the bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students and their supporters. Students take a day-long vow of silence to symbolically represent the silencing of LGBT students and their supporters.
The Day of Silence has been held each year in April since 1996. The 2010 Day of Silence was held on April 16; this year’s will be on April 15.
This is our Open Thread for this Thursday. Feel free to talk about whatever strikes your fancy.
