Quote for Today

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.

~ Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)

    I remember this quote from “I am Malala” as something her father said. I did not realize it’s origin was from German Pastor, Martin Niemöller. Always learning something new!
