I Didn’t Speak Up, By Rev. Martin Niemoeller

“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 trade unionists... and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics... but 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 for me.”
