A Word About the Power of Silence
 

 

One of the most powerful quotes and or statements that drive this All-Inclusive Ally Safe Zone program is stated below.

 

"In Germany the Nazis first 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 homosexuals, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a homosexual.  Then they came for the Catholics, but I did not 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."

 

Modified from Martin Niemoeller, Lutheran pastor arrested by the Gestapo and sent to Dachau concentration camp in 1938; the Allied forces freed him seven years later.

 

This quote is the reason why this program should be promoted each and every day.  We must speak up for all minority groups!
