I pledge never to be silent too!

~In his own words~

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.

Do you know this quote?

It was spoken by Martin Niemöller about the cowardice of German intellectuals following the Nazis’ rise to power and the subsequent purging of their chosen targets, group after group. There is some disagreement over the exact wording of the quotation and when it was uttered; the content of the quotation may have been presented differently by Niemöller on different occasions. Remember, this was more than 60 years ago and still it seems that many people haven’t learned from it yet. Nowadays we can add some lines to this tragic “poem”:

When they came for the homeless I did not speak out, I was not homeless.

When they came for the homosexuals I did not speak out because I am not a homosexual.

(because I was afraid to admit I am homosexual)

When they came for the immigrants I did not speak out because I am not an immigrant.

So I think I will adapt a quote by Elie Wiesel and I hope you will take this pledge with me as well. If you are willing to take this pledge please reblog this post or make your own post in your own wordings but include this pledge you ca find a version without name right here the used font is Cambria.

  2. Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:

    Three years ago, my dear friend/brother Martin created this awesome graphic!! In view of the ugly, nonredeemable events taking place in America .. most recent the fatal Charlottesville hate rally and Drumpf’s response to these events … I renew this pledge and state that I won’t be silent in the face of this distortion of kindness, unity and humanity!
    We ALL are ONE!!
