    On the National Day of Silence
    hundreds of thousands of students nationwide
    take a vow of silence to bring attention to
    anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment
    in their schools.

    Day of Silence 2021’s theme is "My Silence, My Story"

     
    Here at MHS, we started participating
    in the Day of Silence
    more than 10 years ago.
    We did it so often that we noticed our silence
    was sometimes backfiring:
    some people took advantage of the day
    to be ruder than ever.
     
    In response, we added a crucial component:
    GIVING VOICE.
    We ended each day of silence
    with energetic and vociferous proclamations
    of our presence, our strength, and our unity.
     
    This year of 2020-2021,
    so many of us are silenced every day
    by isolation, by quarantine, by distance.
    Hopefully, when a new school year begins,
    we can meet together in safe spaces once again.
     
    We'll definitely hold a special
    Day of Silence
    in the Spring of 2022!
