Why We Must Fight for Our Freedoms Now

This is from the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, a longer version of the famous poem from Martin Niemoller which was written after the Nazi takeover of Germany, important words for an important time in our country’s existence:

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then 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 out for me
