Food for Thought: A Moment of Silence

In some U.S. states, public schools begin their school day with a moment of silence, a time during which students can reflect. This presents a perfect opportunity for students to think about a Higher Authority.
Moment of Silence, Lubavitcher Rebbe

A Moment of Silence
Disc 120, Program 477

Event Date: 10 Nissan 5744 - April 12, 1984

In some U.S. states, public schools begin their school day with a moment of silence, a time during which students can reflect.

This presents a perfect opportunity for students to think about a Higher Authority, and the Rebbe urged that the practice become universally adopted.

Not only does it allows students to commence their studies with the right perspective, lending meaning to the day ahead, but it also opens a meaningful dialogue between children and parents by prompting students to return home and ask parents what it is, exactly, that they are supposed to think about.
