This year I am a senior in high school, and this upcoming fall I will be starting Pre-Med at our State University. My junior year, I was a pioneer member in our school's very first GSA group. That stands for "Gay-Straight Alliance." This year it was still going strong, with support from multiple places, but we also encountered our first bit of resistance. This past Wednesday my group members and I went to hang up posters for the upcoming "Day of Silence." The posters displayed the date of the event, and the reasons why people participate. It's a day that students remain silent for all of the people who don't have a voice. Well... Today I found out that teachers had been told to take down all of our posters advertising the day of silence. So now we can't speak for the people who can't speak out, because we can't even speak out for ourselves and our beliefs' in our school. We haven't yet heard the reason that our posters are being taken down, but in my opinion, we wouldn't have this resistance if we were some other club that wasn't as controversial.
