Who will speak up?

I walked the “Freedom Trail” in Boston yesterday. At the Holocaust Memorial, I read this:

holocaust-lessons“They came first 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,
and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by the that time no one was left to speak up”
~Martin Niemoeller, Holocaust Survivor
Will you speak up?
