Standard

So many these days fail to appreciate silence. Some even seem afraid of it, or what will catch up will them in its tranquility.
TV/ phones, etc. continually spew forth as background noise, as if silence were an enemy that would devour them, minds constantly needing distraction, no peace within. Many seem to be running through life, ears blocked with headphones, afraid of the sound of silence, the stillness when the soul speaks.
I remember a time when man sat in tranquility, absorbing the silence, at one with nature. I wish my grandchildren to know this peace also.

  1. One of the best ways to appreciate life is to sit in silence and feel the world you live in. I agree with you completely. Electronics and other forms of technology have taken over our existence. We need to expose younger generations to the gifts that silence offers.
