“THROUGHOUT HISTORY, IT HAS BEEN THE INACTION OF THOSE WHO COULD HAVE ACTED, THE INDIFFERENCE OF THOSE WHO SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER, THE SILENCE OF THE VOICE OF JUSTICE WHEN IT MATTERED MOST, THAT HAS MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR EVIL TO TRIUMPH.” – Haile Selassie
All of us have the awesome responsibility to exercise our rights as citizens. I have long heard that we have the government we deserve. And I have now come to see exactly what that means.
We all need to step up and make our voices heard. We need to stand up and make sure our vote is counted. We cannot allow the plague of fear, hatred, and ultra-right nationalism to continue to spread. It’s up to us to stop the spread of this insidious infection.
And if we don’t, if we are too busy, too indifferent, too callous and uncaring, well… we will live in a country that has the government we deserve.
