First They Came For The Socialists….

It can be said that history is doomed to be repeated if we do not remember the lessons of the past. During World War II, Martin Niemoller, a well known Protestant Pastor, was not shy about speaking out against the Nazis. His most famous quote is as follows:

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.

One of Albert Einstein’s most famous quotes is not about science, but about human beings and how we treat each other.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of people who are evil, but because of people who don’t do anything about it

President Obama seems to have his head in the sand when it comes to the reality of the world that we live in.

I fear for our world and our children with this man in the White House.
