Touch me not

First they came for the Communists,
And I didn’t speak up,
Because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
And I didn’t speak up,
Because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
And I didn’t speak up,
Because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
And by that time there was no one
Left to speak up for me.

-Martin Niemöller

    Unfortunately, even though we all know this poem, we can say it by heart, it doesn’t seem to make people take action. I don’t understand it but it’s true. It’s also sad.

      God gave us good brain and 5 senses not to look away. I believe.
