Tomorrow April 23rd is the Day of Silence
Created in 1996 and held every April — April 23 this year — Day of Silence is a campaign that seeks to shed light on what many LGBTQ youth experience daily. Initially intended to focus on this problem within the school system, it has since expanded into workplaces, university campuses, and sporting events. Yearly, millions participate by staying silent for the duration of their day, representing the silencing of LGBTQ students.
Students go through the school day without speaking, ending the day with Breaking the Silence rallies and events to share their experiences during the protest and bring attention to ways their schools and communities can become more inclusive.

Oracle of the 7 Energies by Colette Baron-Reid
Card #34- Opening to Discovery
We tune into information from our outer environment, then assign meaning to it within our psyches. Every day, however, the amount of data we sort through exceeds what we’re capable of processing. Especially since the advent of the internet, we have been bombarded with more than we could ever absorb. Therefore it’s important to be mindful of what we expose ourselves to.
Consistent exposure to unhealthy messages invites us into a cynical, fear-based worldview. On the other hand, conscious exposure to information supporting our well-being shifts us toward growth and expansion.
The choice though it not always obviously ours, which is why we must be discerning on a daily basis.
The universe is always engaging us- we are part of it, through synchronicities, omens, and other signs that point toward our best path.
Our intuition helps us tune in to see our environment like an oracle. However this new information doesn’t always make sense right away, so being curious and nonresistant is key to learning
Today be open to receiving important information that may come from an unusual source. The universe wants to help you, but recognizing the way this aid will arrive depends on your willingness to shut out superfluous noise. Don’t let yourself get distracted. Listen without attachment and see what arises in your life. Expect a message from the universe and you shall have it
Rocky Roggio and I talk about the movie she is directing showing when the word ‘Homosexual” was added to the bible and how that happened. Rocky shares why she chose to make this movie and how she has bridged the relationship with her father.
‘1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted a Culture’
More than 45,000 churches today still preach that homosexuality is a sin, citing biblical references that condemn “homosexuals.” What would change if churches discovered the truth — the word “homosexual” was added to the Bible in 1946 by mistake?
Rocky Roggio is an independent filmmaker and production designer (credits include House of Cards, Red Dawn). Rocky is also a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, and moved out of her home after coming out to her conservative, religious parents. Rocky’s father, Sal Roggio, is a non-affirming pastor and preaches that the LGBTQIA+ lifestyle is sinful.
