There will be no blogging today to show my support of THE DAY OF SILENCE, sponsored by GLSEN. Today is a day of action in which bloggers across the US can take a vow of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools.
I remember the words and threats addressed to me and others when I was growing up and what paralyzed me and kept me in the closet when I was younger have emboldened and made me stronger as an adult. However, in memory of the frightened and confused teenager and young adult I once was and to show my support, today I am refraining from blogging. Your comments and thoughts are of course welcome, and I'll be back to blogging on Saturday.
