"When is there DIGNITY in silence?"
I think there is dignity in silence when somebody is bullying you or just not being respectful to you you should just turn the other cheek and not retaliate. Cause then they might respect you more and sometimes you won't get yourself into trouble when you do talk back or swing back. I think being silent especially is important when you are in trouble by a parent or teacher because then it could lead to more severe or hurtful punishments. Jackie Robinson was the first African-American to play in the MLB (Major league baseball) other African-Americans played in a league called the Negro League which only blacks had played in it and then whites played in the MLB. Many people did not want him there and they said really rude things to him but he could not say anything because then they would kick him out to the league so he had to be silent.
