Between the Philadelphia Convention Center and the Reading Market Terminal an escalator resides next to a wall with a mural painted on it. At first glance it appears as though the escalator is taking people away from, or dropping people off at, the train station. The mural is an amazing work of art with great detail pronouncing the history of the building. The escalator is busy with the hustle and bustle of today’s travelers and locals alike.
“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grow in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence. We need silence to be able to touch souls.” – Mother Teresa
