THIS REALITY ALWAYS REMINDS ME OF PASTOR NIEMOLLER

Why do I use this graphic with the pastor’s poem?

Because in any sane mind,  we find hard time explaining the state of American politics.

Most of all rise of Donald Trump.

He’s come after almost every ethnic groups, many established personalities and caters to white, right-wing fundamentalists.

If you are lucky not to be in any of these groups, consider that, when it’s your time, no one will be there to rescue you.

Maybe this is what’s happened in the Middle East.

“They came first for the Communists,
and I did not speak up, because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I did not speak up, because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I did not speak up, because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I did not speak up, because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time, no one was left to speak up for me.”
Pastor Martin Niemöller

Myriad versions of Pastor Niemöller’s original quote began circulating in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, yet his exhortative words on the perilous pitfalls of political and social apathy couldn’t be more germane than they are today.

Niemöller originally intended to warn against passive detachment in believing dangerous power persecuting one group wouldn’t eventually seek to target all, as occurred during the Nazis’ rise to power.

MY QUOTE FOR TODAY IS

TheyCame

THE STORY BEHIND IT

The quotation stems from Niemöller’s lectures during the early postwar period. Different versions of the quotation exist. These can be attributed to the fact that Niemöller spoke extemporaneously and in a number of settings.

Much controversy surrounds the content of the poem as it has been printed in varying forms, referring to diverse groups such as Catholics, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Jews, Trade Unionists, or Communists depending upon the version.

Nonetheless his point was that Germans — in particular, he believed, the leaders of the Protestant churches — had been complicit through their silence in the Nazi imprisonment, persecution, and murder of millions of people.

I find these words so very important and so very inspiring. Even though they were written during WWII and Nazi Germany and mention Communists, Jews, Catholics and Protestants, you can fill in the blanks with the different ethnic groups of current times.

By doing so, the quote becomes relevant and current.

Bottom line. we need to band together and stand up against the forces that work against equality and humanity.

We ALL are connected through HUMANITY!
