The world is not dangerous because of the harmful, but because of those who do nothing about it .I grew up learning about the Holocaust. I'm privileged to have heard the stories from those who survived. What sticks with me more robustly than the images of the atrocities themselves is the fact that so many stood by and allowed it to happen. The conspiracy of silence is a sad side-effect of - and contributor to - the enormous tragedies that so often scar our planet. And us.
Makes me wonder when we'll start using our voices a little more courageously.
Your turn: When do you speak up? Why wouldn't you?
