Today is Yom haShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). With that in mind, my thought of the day is from Pastor Martin Niemöller:
[center]First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.[/center]
