” We can travel a long way and do many things, but our deepest happiness is not born from accumulating new experiences, it is born from letting go of what is unnecessary, and knowing ourselves to be always at home.”- Sharon Salsberg

The GSA’s service project is Friday, April 17, the Day of Silence, a day organized to honor those who have been silenced by bullying for their gender identity or sexual orientation (you can learn more at http://www.dayofsilence.org/). All participants (that means you guys) stay silent for an entire day to bring awareness to this, while wearing the awesome t-shirts provided by the GSA! If you buy this year’s shirt, your money will go towards an awesome organization called the Trevor Project that specifically helps LGBT+ teens.
To order a shirt, click this link: https://www.customink.com/g/hkv0-009f-jmvr. You need to put in your name and your shirt size so that we know what to order. If you’re going to order a shirt, you need to put in your information by noon on Friday, April 3. You’ll need to pay for the shirt anywhere from Monday the 13 to Friday the 17. I’ll be set up outside Foundation Hall each day during lunch to collect money; right now the shirts will be sold for $13.
Lost and Found items are in the front hall. Please come and retrieve your belongings as they will be donated at the end of the week.

Did You Know? DYK
* Living with T1D is a constant challenge. People with the disease must carefully balance insulin doses (either by injections multiple times a day or continuous infusion through a pump) with eating and other activities throughout the day and night. They must also measure their blood-glucose level by pricking their fingers for blood six or more times a day. Despite this constant attention, people with T1D still run the risk of dangerous high or low blood-glucose levels, both of which can be life threatening. People with T1D overcome these challenges on a daily basis.
