Today is the 15th annual Day of Silence sponsored by GLSEN, the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network.
The Day of Silence involves thousands of students at more than 6000 middle and high schools taking some form of a vow of silence for the day to call attention to anti-TBLG name-calling, bullying and harassment.
My sis Isis King has cut a promo video for it (and y'all know how much I love little sis)
Of course the haters will be out in full force trying to either disrupt it or pulling their kids out of school.
Guess Itawamba Agricultural High School in Fulton, MS will be empty today.
As someone who experienced it firsthand during my school days, may this day be a success one that starts genuine conversations about the serious issue of BTLG school bullying.
