Let us not forget what hate can do

January 27 is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Let us not forget what hate can do. To stand around and listen to hateful words and say nothing, or watch hateful actions and do nothing, makes one complicit. Let us not be indifferent to what goes on in the world around us. We are a part of that world. Remember, the one most hurt by hate is the hater.  — Tanya Goodman

“We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe.”
― Elie WieselThe Night Trilogy: Night, Dawn, the Accident
