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.

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.
