When their lips were sealed
Stories have started coming in about what happened during the Student's Day of Silent Solidarity, in which some 1,200 campuses in and outside the United States participated. You can read all about it (and see some photos) at the event website but here are snippets from a student named S.J. :

Here are some reactions people had when they found out what I was doing:
"I don't believe in picketing abortion clinics, but that silence thing is a good idea. It's like a fast."
"Are you the only one doing it, or are there more?"
*understanding smile and nod*
"Aww... and now I forgot what you ordered 'cause I was reading your shirt..."
