Day of Silence 2012 by Onslaught14 Day of Silence 2012 by Onslaught14
"And so we will rise. We will rise above the hatred of those who let their malice speak for them. We will rise above those, too afraid to understand and let otherís hate speak for them. We will rise all of those who think the suffering of otherís will make them better in the eyes of their fellow closed minded. We will march, despite their cries for us to halt. We will march past those who use our creator as a weapon. We will march past those who use the words of god as a way to tell children they are disgusting, vile and monstrous, simply for loving who they love. We will climb the mountain of not equality, but love. Love should no have to be equal, love should be universal. Love should not be a thing that someone who does not grasp itís true concept getís to vote on. We will fight the fight that should not have to be fought. Our wounds will bleed freedom, our fallen shall cry out for liberty from their graves. Those who were driven to take their lives, because the world would not take them, we shall cradle them in our arms. As well as the families who have suffered their childrenís torment. Those who have be silenced to quite our cause will only make our shouts louder. We will shout from that mountain top, so that those who can not speak, know that they are being spoken for. So that a homosexual child can know that their love is not a sin, and so a heterosexual child can not feel alienated for standing up for his friends rights. Our shouts shall be heard by the powerful as well as the weak. Our cries will not call out the wicked on their sins, but tell the taleís of those who can not tell them. We refuse to let them be forgotten, we will not let them be silenced. We will not be silenced. We will not back down. We will stand firm on that mountain top. We may stand there bruised and battered, but our resolve will remain strong. We will speak our message of love. And you know whatís beautiful about it? We will never have to speak a word."

*Edit* Added speech I made for it.

This is for "Day of Silence", a day were people remain silent the entire day to honor those who have been silenced do to hate crimes against LGBT youth's. I'm proud to say I participated today.
