“By My Silence” by Ellen Bukstel and Nick Annis

#MoralMonday Where do you pray to see justice and peace built today?

Based on the words of German theologian, Martin Niemoller (1892-1984):

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.
