Deafening Silence

The theme for this podcast is deafening silence. There has been a plethora of unpleasant news the past few weeks but many of us have been silent. It is said that silence is golden but not in these instances.  Tune in to hear about how the world has been silent about the innocent Syrian children being continuously bombed, the devastation from the Baton Rouge floods, the corporate greed from American insurance companies,  the systemic racism and its continuous occurrence in Baltimore and North Carolina, the horrific Islamaphobic incidences in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Queens, NY. All these situations begs the questions of why have we been silent? What can we do to help these people? And why we cannot be silent anymore. Our silence to these tragic situations has been deafening. In order to change this we MUST say something, we must get involved. WE CANNOT BE SILENT ANYMORE.
