The Day of Silence is actually really stupid. Sure, we're remembering the people who had killed themselves because of bullying for being gay, but that isn't going to make people realize how they shouldn't do these things. They're not going to wake up in the morning thinking, "Oh! I shouldn't make fun of that kid today!" It's not going to make kids come out and expect everyone to respect them. Besides what's the point of being silent, your silence isn't helping anybody now or in the future, amirite?
