Q. Why should parents be concerned about the so-called Day of Silence?
A. This event was started first by college students, then picked up as a national activist effort by an adult homosexual advocacy group, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). The goal is to promote homosexuality to all students in a given school, under the aegis of fighting discrimination. It has grown enormously, unfortunately, as the support for the 'gay' agenda has been embraced by schools and impressionable students nationwide.
