My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together.

Racism, Sexism, Classism, the other “isms” and YOU!



YES, It’s always “The other Guy”. . . until IT’S YOU!



As we listen to and are tempted to repeat the rhetoric about immigrants, people of other races, religions, or those in any way different from ourselves, I pray that we remember, reflect upon and consider the wisdom of these words:



First they came for the Jews

and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.



Then they came for the Communists

and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.



Then they came for the trade unionists

and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.



Then they came for me

and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Inspirations -Mon., March 14, 2016

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope… and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
