First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak out because I was Protestant.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
-Pastor Martin Niemöller, (1892–1984) Dachau survivor
I haven't been able to get this out of my head the last few days... I am not Catholic and I, personally, would much rather pay for contraception than abortions and unwanted children...BUT, what will they come for next and who will be there to speak for me?
"The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities." - Ayn Rand
Care, intervene and make a difference because it's the right thing to do...not just because it benefits you.
This is my wish for myself...I hope you'll join me.
