Letter from a participant:
.. I just wanted to take the time to thank you for making this day possible and tell you how it has made me felt.
Last year on October 19th, I noticed that my friend Kurtis was being quiet, something he generally never is. I did not think very much of it. Then, after an assembly during second period, Kurtis and a girl named Bethany walked up to me and handed me a tiny flier explaining why they were silent. ..I googled silent day and found silentday.org. When I saw how many schools were registered....Bryan, I have been whole-heartedly pro-life ever since I knew what abortion was and I have always felt alone in that. But seeing all those schools, seeing all those people who stood with me, I realinzed that I was not alone. I was the only one who participated in PLDSS on October 18th 2011. ..Back at home, I'm working on a play that I am writing about abortion and listening to music at the same time. Then, Saosin's "You're Not Alone" comes on and I get goosebumps. It just hit me all over again the strength that I got from PLDSS. Thank you so much for creating all this and I will continue to participate in Silent Day until I die or until there is no longer a need for it. I am hoping for the latter. - KR
