They say silence is golden. What about all the silent cries coming from people pleading for help? Why is being silent a good thing? Shouldn’t we tell people if we are hurt, sad or even scared? Why must we stay silent when the everyone is shouting? Why must the victims remain quiet while the attackers can yell and rant? Why can’t we tell someone that we are being hurt? We can’t because we were taught silence is golden and being quiet about will make it go away.
