Fearsome and I keep a fairly low profile. However, times come when we must speak. A famous quote from the holocaust reminds us that as humans we must speak out for those who are oppressed. We must speak out against hate. We must speak out against the unjust. We must feel empathy for our fellows, before it is too late.
The U.S.A. never was, is not and was never intended to be an all white, all Christian, all heterosexual nation.
Therefore we decided to just post that famous quote here…
Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.
Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
