Standing in silence, Newport Beach Fire Chief Steve Lewis remembered what it was like at Ground Zero in the weeks after the attacks, seeing people’s items and papers from their offices scattered on the ground and imagining firefighters like him making their way up the towers to save others. “It really brings to light that it’s not just numbers — it’s people. It hit me for a second, it was a very, very surreal moment in history for me to be there. And to see that town, that place change like that, it was very moving,” he said.

"I want people to know they are definitely not alone and they can speak up and they have a voice," said freshman Savannah Bachelder, 14, who is part of the Humans Relations Council.

Paul Clinton NEWPORT BEACH -- An eerie silence has blanketed Santa Ana Heights in the days following terrorist attacks against the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

One woman, who declined to give her name, said she was content staying at her Pegasus Street home.

The sound of rainfall! It is sweet music that helps us to slow down, relax and reflect. Our mood naturally tends to become more leisurely and peaceful. These ordinary sounds are harder to hear these days. Trucks emptying trash bins, leaf blowers, car alarms and helicopters have become our “soundscape.” Our culture is saturated with overhead announcements, elevator music, TV and computer programs as well as the incessant noise from cellphone ringing and loud conversations.

Lawrence Winters’ usually frenetic eighth-grade social studies class sat in silence watching videos about global warming Thursday.

Students decided to do some environmental activism by writing letters and building posters to promote a “green” world, while educating themselves on the subject.

TUSTIN - On any other weekday last year, he would be wearing a suit and tie as he stood at the helm of Newport-Mesa Unified School District. But on a recent morning there was no longer a need for formality. The former superintendent who once oversaw 31 schools and 3,000 employees is now unwillingly retired, having been fired by the school board shortly after his conviction on misappropriation of public funds. So dressed in jeans and a beige button-down, Jeffrey Hubbard, 55, gives the first formal interview since his arrest between sips of a tall coffee at a bakery near his Tustin home.

COSTA MESA — A small group of parents this week urged the Newport-Mesa Unified school board to cover the expense of sixth-grade science camp. One presented trustees with a petition urging the district to continue absorbing the costs. "I know you are strapped for money, but can't you find the money this year to provide for the sixth-graders that want to go this year?" said Martha O'Mara, a fifth-grade teacher. After a staff report on funding the camp, school board Trustee Katrina Foley made a motion to put the issue on the next meeting's agenda for discussion, but the motion was met with silence.

For years, Elaina Kroll had stopped singing. The Newport Beach resident had been robbed of her childhood passion by her church choir director, who molested her. The sexual abuse she had suffered as a bewildered 16-year-old had been, in her mind, cruelly fused together with music. In the subsequent years, she would drop out of a prestigious music conservatory in Boston, suffer from depression and no longer have the desire to sing. But Saturday night, at the fundraising gala in Anaheim for The Innocent Mission — a nonprofit she founded last year — Kroll will play the piano and sing Sarah McLachlan's hauntingly beautiful "Angel.

In an age where we have become immune to noise pollution and environmental destruction, noise is often considered an accepted and relished norm. Silence, as a result, can seem strange and abnormal. In the midst of increased noise, silence is a state we often turn our backs on.

LeClaire : In practicing silence, author Anne Le Claire learned to listen to her deepest self.
