Democracy is at stake in America and around the world. Voting rights are suppressed. People are killed because of the color of their skin. Countries are illegally invaded. The poor die while the rich buy. History’s facts are expelled so that fantasies can swell. Time to act, speak up, and take a side. Accountability is required.
“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 Wiesel
