Hello Sprague staff and students!  Today is National Day of Silence.  By participating in this event, you are hopefully bringing awareness to others around you about today's gay, bisexual, and transgendered youths who are bullied or harassed.  By remaining silent, you represent the unheard voices of people who are underrepresented and who frequently face discrimination just because they are a member of the LGBT community.  Please think about the voices you are not hearing today, and support anyone who is participating in this movement. What are you going to do to end the silence? 4/21
