We allow the ugliness of the Holocaust when we fail to challenge our own thoughts and feelings.
We enable the Holocaust when we fail to challenge such thoughts and feelings in others.
Please do not walk by on the other side. Stop, think, speak out.
Do not accept the unacceptable.
I have seen evil so close by,
Toxic words slithering forth,
Fangs glistening poison,
Ready to strike,
Hearts and minds.
I have heard vindictive thoughts
Spew from a void of bottomless hate,
Under the guise of reason or love,
Venom flowing in every word.
