Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Can you believe another year has just begun.  There is something that I learned as a child, silence is golden. Is this true all of the time? 

Read the poem below and think about when is silence golden or when is silence ungolden?  

Silence is golden when it enables a person to think, pray,

and to be at peace, to meditate to his God.

Silence is golden when it enables a group of people to enjoy

a play, movie, sermon, or some music.

Silence is golden when it enables a student to learn

 different things as he grows.

Silence is golden when it enables a doctor to think of the best

way to heal the patient.

Silence is golden when we can hear the information given on the television or radio that saves lives

such as a  newscast when there is bad weather.

Silence is golden when it enables a person to read for pleasure.

Silence is golden when it does not hurt.

Silence is ungolden when a student is graduating from high

school and cannot read.

Silence is ungolden when a teacher sees that a student is hungry

day after day and does nothing about it.

Silence is ungolden when racism is allowed to go on.

Silence is ungolden when a person knows that others are being abused, sexually, verbally, physically or mentally and does nothing about it.
