The Day of Silence has become a very divisive topic fo

The Day of Silence has become a very divisive topic for our Valley. The idea behind it is valid — to provide awareness for people who feel discriminated against. I think the divisiveness comes from allowing one group an entire school day to focus on them. There are many people, in addition to gays and lesbians, that feel discriminated against. What about fat people? Racial minorities? Christians? Students who struggle academically? It is imperative for the school to decide whether they will allow all groups the same opportunity, or no groups.

The trail was recommended by a task force formed by Mayor Darwin Sukut to link the existing city center with the newly annexed area around Snoqualmie Falls.
