A few days ago we had the Day of Silence. The Day of Silence is a day where you choose a certain period of time to be silent. We did this for the gay and lesbian kids that are getting bullied. When people think of bullying they usually think of kids making fun of other kids because they are not so smart or short or other reasons. But this day is for kids getting picked on because they are gay or lesbian. Our class chose a period of time to be silent, I chose for 9:30 to 12:00. Us, 5D and 3A participated in this event to bring attention to the fact that gay and lesbian kids in schools and colleges get bullied because of who they are. We are going to work with 3A on a proposal to try and get this to be our whole school participating next year.
