Secondly, the so-called "Day of Silence" is sponsored by the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) .

This is one of several days homosexual activists have co-opted in public schools to advance their agenda.

The day is said to be a student led day in which students and faculty remain silent in protest to bullying---particularly of homosexual students. No student should ever be bullied for any reason---ever!

However, for a myriad of reasons, including the obvious disruption to a learning environment and the waste of tax dollars in the disruption, we strongly oppose this particular event. It is a sham.

We encourage you to contact your school administration and ask, "Is our school or school district allowing students and/or faculty to remain silent on Friday the 15th, in support of the Day of Silence."

Many school administrators will be evasive, telling you they are not involved, it is a student led event, implying they don't know much about it,etc., etc.,---Be respectful, but persistent and find out.

If Day of Silence is happening in your school, we strongly recommend you keep your child out of school that day in protest.

While this "Day" started on college campuses, it is now organized in high schools, middle schools and even in grades below middle school.

If you get a an email response from your school, I would like to see it. If you would forward it to me it would be helpful.

God bless you.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Informed. Be Active. Be Prayerful.
