April 30 Blogging Silence


April 30 provides an opportunity for all bloggers to honor the victims of violence in this world by remaining silent. I will be honoring this moritoriumm, and will neither blog nor comment tomorrow.

It’s such a small thing. I wish I were doing more.

  3. Today was the first time I hear of this. I would commend efforts to combat unneccesary violence but I think this kicd of thing draws a lot more attention to the evolving dynamics of cyber world rather than violence.

  4. 1001 – Most bloggers blog because they love to express themselves, so to refrain from blogging is a kind of sacrifice. And as I said, it is such a small thing – hopefully, it urges us to seek greater ways to create a more peaceful world.
