Today is the National Day of Silence........

The National Day of Silence brings attention to
anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment
in schools. This year’s event will be held in
memory of Lawrence King, a California 8th-grader
who was shot and killed Feb. 12 by a classmate
because of his sexual orientation and gender
expression. Hundreds of thousands of students
will come together on April 25 to encourage schools
and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBT
