First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
Please pray for the Yazidi and Christian communities of Iraq, whose people are facing genocide, and for the governments of the West, who have the power to act before its loo late.
Pray for the courage to do what is right: to protect those who cannot protect themselves.
