You never know how difficult it is not to say a word until you don't do it for a day. O_o

My sister is doing this at her high school today. She's a member of the Gay/Straight alliance.

I'm SO mad at myself for forgetting this year! I've done it every year for six years! I can't believe I forgot. >.<

It's been a rough year for everyone.

I would like to organize a Silent Campus next year, though.

Aye, I was unable to do it because I was singing for children but I will remember next year.

Silent campus would be awesome if it were really possible. I go to a big, big school and I can't really see getting more than a hundred participating.

I've always been interested in things like this, but I have... well, a really big mouth and love talking. I think I shall try to participate next time though.

Hopefully I don't stub my toe and scream "SHIT!" or something like I usually do.

I'm really quiet any way, so Day of Silence is easy for me to do.  :-\

Ive done this in the past a few times. They do it every year at my old highschool. I think its a cool way to raise awareness even though some kids just do it to get out of being questioned by the teacher ::)

Yeah, but then you have a hundred or so people roaming around campus raising awareness that you may not have had before.

I couldn't do it because of my job, but I think it's a wonderful idea and when several people in my department wanted to do it we worked on giving them projects that would fit their needs.  It worked our really well for them and got a lot of interest when we explained it to everyone else.

Very true. I never really thought of it that way. It would be nice to have more of a presence on campus, or at least have people thinking about it for a day.
