Some people find it hard to write with zero inspiration. Me? The only reason for me to write with zero inspiration is either because I said I would, I feel like it, or I have something to say. Yesterday I felt like it. In the case of ABC, I said I would. And today, today I have something to say. I am sorry to inform you that that something is just a disclaimer that I thought was cool. :P Oh, and the stuff in italics is taken from the real thing. I don't take credit for it.
Disclaimer: 1) a renunciation of any claim to or connection with; 2) disavowal; 3) a statement made to save one's own ass; 4) a foresaid word for not being blamed later

Third Person Limited (to Kendall) POV
James had been acting weird all week. It wasn't really all that noticeable of a thing unless you were actually looking for it. He was on the computer for more than half an hour at a time. Not unusual for most teenagers, but for James it was certainly out of the ordinary. Something about more than that making you a couch potato…? He printed something that wasn't a picture nor was it colorful. In other words… NOT a portfolio picture. Oddly enough, it was text. A bunch of little paragraphs with a header and a two-page report type thing. It wasn't very… James-ish behavior. Not in the slightest. At Kendall's questioning look he simply shrugged. He cut apart the small paragraphs. With a small smile tugging at his lips, he handed Kendall one of the smaller papers.
Day of Silence
www . dayofsilence . com
Please understand my reasons for not speaking today. I am participating
in the Day of Silence (DOS), a national youth movement bringing
attention to the silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender
people and their allies. My deliberate silence echoes that silence, which
is caused by anti-LGBT bullying, name-calling and harassment.
I believe that ending the silence is the first step toward building
awareness and making a commitment to address these injustices.
Think about the voices you are not hearing today.
What are you going to do to end the silence? www . glsen . org
The message wasn't lost on Kendall. He followed the first web address seeing as that was what the paragraph was about. The first thing he read was the header. April 16, 2010. The next day. Browsing the site, he found a few interesting things, and formulated a plan. He showed the paper to Carlos and Logan. He told them of his plan.
"Will you help?"
Then next day saw all of the boys of Big Time Rush wearing red shirts, carrying little papers, and getting yelled at by Gustavo. They did, however have a few problems staying quiet. Carlos resorted to duct tape. Kendall thought it was worth it though. If the smile on James's face and his quiet hug were anything to go by, that is.
Yeah, so my friends and me are getting all hyped up about this again. It wouldn't be a problem if it weren't for that fact that the next one just so happens to be next year. *rolls eyes* That's my friends for you. I strongly encourage you all to join the next one. Sign up on the website too. Its completely harmless. Signing up that is. I have about twenty of my friends doing it with me this year. ^^
