As you may recall from previous posts, the school that I teach at (Rock County Christian School – Beloit, WI) took part in the National Pro Life Day of Silent Solidarity. You can learn more about it at www.silentday.org. Bascially, we encouraging students to wear a red armband/wristband (or red duct tape) and specially-made tee-shirts in remembrance of the over 48 million children who have had their voices silenced through surgical abortion. We had several moments of silence throughout the day, including a time of prayer for public school students who took this stand as well.
Overall I think we had a good day. Along with the activities above, the high school students also watched the 180 documentary. This gave students alot to think about and have some good classroom discussion about it. I was very glad to see many students voluntarily giving up their voice for the entire day.
In chapel that day, Randy Melchert gave students even more to think about by raising some interesting points and answering many of thier questions. You can watch Randy’s message below:
