a year of silence


  Silence is (or used to be) associated with reverence and respect. We are quiet in temples or churches, and we still show respect for someone speaking by not making noise.
  Being noisy can be a very effective way of demonstrating complete disrespect for somebody or something. As our empathy and respect for one another slowly erodes away, the noise our society makes grows steadily louder.
