The Sound of Silence

#The Sound of Silence#

Sign language that is natural to the non-hearing community, looks unfamiliar to others in the general hearing society.  Sometimes they communicate better than us who can hear and speak. Is their ability to connect without spoken words? Or does that mean they speak from their heart and mind? How do we balance both? 

The challenge faced by the Deaf people is the lack of access to information. They commonly rely on the interaction of visual communication interpretation and very often there is a lack of it. With full and equal access to information, they will then be able to make informed decisions. Would you consider learning, connecting, and building bridges between communities?

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains

Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night

And touched the sound of silence
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
No one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools" said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words like silent raindrops fell

And echoed in the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence"
