As an educator, I was saddened an appalled upon reading the call for a boycott of the National Day of Silence ("Parents should boycott this day," May 6). The teacher who chose to participate in the National Day of Silence should be commended, not condemned. This may be a hard for the letter writer to accept, but it takes all sorts to make the world go around.
Not everyone is Christian; our forefathers fought long and hard to retain a separation between church and state. It's in the Constitution; look it up.
The National Day of Silence is not, as the writer stated, "a ploy by the homosexual world to accept their twisted lifestyle." The National Day of Silence was set up to protest acts of violence and bullying towards people of all walks of life. There is no secret conspiracy; just people who care about others. How could a self-proclaimed Christian be against a lesson in tolerance and compassion? Instead of boycotting next year, I invite the letter writer to come to our campus and participate.
