Today the members of the Stillwater High School Gay/Straight Alliance are participating in the National Day of Silence, a protest in support of the millions of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons who are forced to remain silent about who they are by a society that is hostile towards them. Both of my girls are participating and have taken an oath of silence for the day. It begins as soon as they step onto the school property, and ends when they return home. Fliers will be distributed on the high school campus explaining it, and the participants will wear special shirts and buttons identifying themselves as a participant.
Yet another reason I have to be proud of my kids.
