Silence, Censorship, Art

Today is the Day of Silence. Students protest the mistreatment and silencing of LGBT youth in schools by not speaking for eight hours. "Think about the voices you are not hearing today. What are you going to do to end the silence?"

In San Francisco, a vandal vented his hatred of the LGBT community by mutilating more than 600 library books. "Without explanation, he carved up covers and pages and left small typewritten slips of paper advertising a Bible radio station tucked inside the damaged works."

Yes, he was caught. Now the ruined books have been turned into objects of art.
