First they came, Time to Pray

“First they came . . .” by Martin Niemoller

Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

— Martin Niemöller, The author was a Lutheran pastor and theologian born in Germany in 1892.

Powerful words for the current situation I think.  On my knees.  Time to #Pray #Ukraine
