I just want to thank everyone that is participating in this dialogue. I’m in a headspace for college finals that won’t allow me to read the articles, because I can’t allow my focus to shift in that direction…I know that it’ll own me for weeks once I start down that path. I am grateful that the dialogue isn’t being swept under the rug, and that there is outrage. Thanks, Terry, for giving us a space to connect.
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. ~ MARTIN NIEMÖLLER
