Today’s blog challenge actually took me a while…there are so many quotes that I have identified with at different points in my life. Quotes are like song lyrics and musical notes to me, I connect to them depending on what’s happening in my life and my moods. So I did what any other millennial would do, and checked my facebook About page for quotes that I had forgotten about until now….yup that happened….
This is what I found,
“Before anyone can fight for you, you must learn to fight for yourself.”

“In Germany, they first came for the Communists; I did not speak because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the Jews; I did not speak because I was not a Jew. Then they came to fetch the workers, members of trade unions; I was not a trade unionist. Afterward, they came for the Catholics; I did not say anything because I was a Protestant. Eventually, they came for me, and there was no one left to speak.”
-Pastor Martin Niemoller, a Protestant minister imprisoned during Germany’s Third Reich
“Thou shalt not be a victim. Thou shalt not be a perpetrator. Above all, thou shalt not be a bystander.”
