It's Our Turn: The blissful sound of silence in a noisy world

Email

What's your favorite sound?

I have a lot of them. The one I hear right now as I write this is the quiet, gentle song of the wind chimes on my front porch.

But to be honest, quite often my favorite sound is silence.

Yes, I know what a wonderful gift the sense of hearing is and I hope I never take it for granted. I couldn't imagine not knowing what the voices of my family members sound like, or never hearing laughter or a waterfall or music.
