On April 16th, students at BHS went silent for 24 hours for the millions of girls around the world who face poverty, exploitation and denial of education. These girls' voices go unheard everyday! BHS's Free the Children group organized the event at the school and over 80 students joined in to support the cause. “We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.” —Malala Yousafzai
