Silence is a strange creature... Sometimes it can be wonderful, sometimes terrible.
Yesterday I was silent when I shouldn't have been. Through my silence I allowed someone to oppress me when they should have remained silent themselves. This has weighed heavily on my mind today.
The world we live in has changed so much in the hundred plus years since this stone was laid. We can do and see marvellous things and yet the attitudes of some of our fellow humans still remains firmly rooted in a darker past. Sad, really.
Learn to speak up when a voice is needed, listen when it is not. Choose your silence carefully, folks.
