This was in my kid’s school district newsletter…
The National Day of Silence is today, April 22, to protest discriminatory and harmful treatment that LGBTQIA2S+ students experience in schools across the nation. This is a student-led demonstration that began in the 1990’s by two college students. On this day, thousands of students and staff who identify as LGBTQIA2S+ and allies are taking a vow of silence for the duration of the day if they participate in this protest. (Cont)
I don’t have any issues with the LGBTQIA2S+ (when did the “2” slip in there? @adam says “aa”) but I take issue with schools celebrating everything from every group. Soon, there will only be days to recognize & celebrate and no more education. Let’s stop celebrating anything at school, other than a kid’s birthday, and move focus on the kids. Forget all the agendas, forget Easter and all the other BS religious holidays. Everything is a distraction yet our kids can’t find Ukraine on a map!
