I didn’t speak up…

“In Germany,
the Nazis first came
for the communists
and I didn’t speak up
because I wasn’t a communist.
.
Then they came
for the Jews
and I didn’t speak up
because I wasn’t a Jew.
.
Then they came
for the trade unionists
and I didn’t speak up
because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
.
Then they came
for the Catholics
and I didn’t speak up
because I was a Protestant.
.
Then they came for me
and by that time
there was no one left
to speak for me.”
.
-Rev. Martin Niemoeller,
a German Lutheran pastor, arrested by the Gestapo in 1938
