The Respect of Silence

The Respect of Silence 

 “In the midst of sorrow, sickness, and death, or misfortune of any kind, and in the presence of the notable and great silence was the mark of respect. More powerful than words was silence with the Lakota.” Standing Bear, Ogallala Lakota

  1. Silence is only good in Libraries.

    If you remember the “Lakota’s they were kicked out of their homes. Your title should be “In Silence We Lost Respect.” In other words of all the people who came over to AMERICA during that time – there are not allot of stories of activism or writing to there Congressman to stop all the misfortune that was presented in their laps at that particular time period.
