The discussion that we had on silence was very informal and interesting. We discussed what silence means to us and how it effects us a person or how it effects our lives and sometimes other peoples lives. I believe that silence can be a positive thing and also sometimes negative depending on the situation. ” Your mouth is like the silencer on James Bond’s pistol.” -Inez. This quote means that silence can either make or break you. Silence helps me be productive and focus. Silence also can be a downer to certain situations such a bullying or abuse.
