Peace and Quiet Revolution


Did you know that almost anywhere becomes "special" when it's quiet? It is human noise that makes many places seem so boring or unappealing as living environments. This is just a reminder that instituting noise restrictions will do a great deal to make many urban and suburban environments more appealing as well as reducing conflicts that start with high volume verbal exchanges. Boom-boxes would have to go, of course. Young male adults defining their territorial turf with music played at loud volume will not like this notion nor will Muslims when it is pointed out that their call to worship inflicts their religious beliefs on all within hearing regardless of religious affiliation. But some sacrifices will have to be made for peace of mind that comes from silence that lets each person experience the sense of place without the noise of others interfering..


-- from Psalm 46:10

Be still and know that I Am God

Be still and know that I AM

Be still and know

Be still
