Quote of the Day #6 

Another quote, my blogging friends! Since yesterday was a funny one, I thought today should be a serious one. This one comes from a Lutheran pastor living in Germany commenting on the rise of the Nazi party and his reluctance to speak out against the evil occurring around him:

“First they came for the Socialists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Socialist. 

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 Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. 

And then they came for me…and there was no one left to speak up.”

-Martin Niemoller
