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!
We ALL are ONE!!
