Tomorrow is a Blog Day of Silence, I’ve seen on a couple sites and decided to join them tomorrow, April 30th, 2007, and this blog will be silent. It may seem silly and insignificant, but these people are creating awareness.
I enjoy this perspective: Silence is a Memoriam, Not a Reason to Stop Blogging.
My blog is silent tomorrow as a tribute and memorial, not because I have nothing to say. Trust me, I have plenty to say on the issue. I will use my mouth, not my fingers, tomorrow to speak out on the issue. I will spend time with my family and friends and listen to their feelings on the issue, many who have also been victims of violence. I give my time to them in honor of this day, when thousands on the web will also be honoring the death and victimization of so many for no good reason.
Thank you. Thank you for listening. Thank you for participating. And even if you don’t, thank you for speaking out. The issue of this Blog Day of Silence has generated more talk about violence and human rights than most news reports. We need to keep talking. We must keep talking. If we are talking about it, hopefully we’ll be too busy to be hurting each other.
