Schools may be a little quieter than usual today. This is the internationally recognized “National Day of Silence”. The National Day of Silence is a student-led movement to protest bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students and those who support them. The Day of Silence brings illustrates to the schools and the colleges how the intimidation, name calling and general bullying has a silencing effect. Participating students take a day-long vow of silence. It has been observed each year in April since 1996.
