Maybe I should take my prayers and light myself on fire and walk out on the wire once again

Tomorrow is the [Day of Silence Project] and thus I will not be speaking.

"Please understand my reasons for not speaking today. I am participating in the Day of Silence, a national youth movement protesting the silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies. My deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by harassment, prejudice, and discrimination. I believe that ending the silence is the first step toward fighting these injustices. Think about the voices you are not hearing today. What are you going to do to end the silence?" - Quote from "speaking cards" passed out by participants during the Day of Silence.
