MY QUOTE FOR TODAY IS

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!

Something to think about …. “We borrow the Earth from our children”!!


EarthAncestors

~~August 11, 2015~~

Protection of the biosphere and biodiversity is relevant to all of humankind

The great leader of the Native American Suquamish Tribe, Chief Seattle (after whom the city is named) was a scholar with great love for his land and people.

He said to his white conquerors:

“Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother.

Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth.

The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth.

Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it.

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”

These words were said over a century and a half ago.

Recently, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) spearheaded a global contract called the Universal Declaration of Bioethics and Human Rights, which has since been adopted by its member countries.
