Students support diversity with Day of Silence Schools & Kids, posted by John Adams, a member of the Amador Valley High School community, on Apr 3, 2009 at 8:47 pm
Margaret and Ro, my family fully supports you and your partners as valued members of the community!!
My daughter came home today with her GSA T-shirt for the Day of Silence. We are so lucky to live in the bay area where she can have friends from all walks of life. All her friends are welcome in our home.
I am curious to know how this could possibly be related to the parcel tax though, and I am aware that by just asking this question this thread will probably be immediately CENSORED!

My three kids all supported this movement on campus over the past 8years. It is nice to see them take a stand for those who have felt silenced.
I cannot find where it is in anyway tied to the parcel tax, John. Maybe I am not researching it enough. It would be a completely silly assumption and connection. Either way, it is doubtful that censorship will ensue. Most cases have been necessary due to comments that were completely off subject or completely out of line...and I'm thankful that someone is willing to draw the line from time to time.

As a Christian student in high school I somewhat disagree with this "day of silence". I understand being gay/lesbian/bi etc.. etc.. can open you up to harsh words and criticism. I do not make fun of people that choose that type of life style. Even though I don't agree with it, I respect them for their choice. My only question is this; as a Christian in high school facing an atheist world, I get made fun of AT LEAST once a week for my beliefs. I wear a purity ring, and wear a cross necklace symbolizing my faith in God. Why don't they have a day for us Christians? Or any other religion for that matter? It seems hypocritical because they want to be excepted, but then they have their own day for themselves and their beliefs?? On that day, I will be proud of my belief, and wearing as much Jesus clothing as I possibly can.
