This is what silence sounds like

This is what silence sounds like

A silence of six minutes and twenty seconds

A silence that pours across a million faces

A silence that washes a million faces with tears

A silence that cascades across the hard-hearted land

A silence that spills from wounds and hearts

A silence that washes away the last of the argument

A silence that pours forth like justice

A silence that sounds like courage

A silence that sounds like

Change.

  1. Yes, never has silence sounded as loud as during those minutes when Emma stared into the cameras, tears rolling down her face. I hope the young can effect change. We have never needed it more.
