The doctor remarked it was unusual — a 5-day old boy circumsized, who only gave a shout and then stayed silent all day . . . But lucky for us, he was never silent about his joy or his laughter. Lucky for all of us, he learned that not to be silent mattered.
My son graduates in May, just down the road from Virginia Tech. Just a few miles away, some silence that some other parents hear now won’t go away ever. . . . It’s silence that follows a noise — a despicable human act. It’s the pain of silence from all who died and heard by all who knew them. It’s the silence of thoughts of what might have been.

All of space is infinitely silent.
