First they came . . .

First they came for the terrorists
I didn’t speak out
I wasn’t a terrorist

Then they came for the enemy combatants
I didn’t speak out
I wasn’t an enemy combatant

Then they came for the protesters
I didn’t speak out
I wasn’t a protester

Then they came for the journalists
I didn’t speak out
I wasn’t a journalist

Then they came for the rest of us . . .

—JG.

Based on the famous poem from Martin Niemöller
