First they came for…


I can pretty much sum up why I stand up for my rights by using this one famous quote.


“THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.

THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.

THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

THEN THEY CAME for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up.”


by Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)

If only more folks would stand up for freedom and civil rights, maybe we would all be free.
