A Minute of Silence

Fiction By H.W. Freedman ©Copyright 2007 by the Author

Based on the author's stage play of the same name.

When the local town observes a minute of silence “for the innocent ones who perished at the hands of the evil ones,” Barry, six years old, and Damon, 35 years old, strangers to each other, separately have the same experience of being so deeply moved by the experience that when the minute is over they are unable to bring themselves to speak again for the rest of their lives lest they lose the feelings they have reached. This is the story of what happens to them and Damon’s daughter Dora and how their lives cross.
