Listen. It's the silence of the small room after the
torturers have left.

Listen. It's the silence in the councils of great
nations when these difficult subjects are left

Listen. It's the silence of ordinary, decent people
who think these things have nothing to do with
them, and that they can do nothing to help.

Listen. Deep inside yourself. What do you hear?

Break the silence.
