Consider the famous quote by Martin Neimoller which came out of the time of the Holocaust:

“In Germany 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 that time no one was left to speak up.”

In a time when the lives of the innocent are taken, when immorality and dishonesty abound, do we remain silent?

“Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong”  —1 Corinthians 16:13
