When they came...

entry picture

 

When they came for students,

I stood up because I had received an education.

When they came for those with disabilities,

I stood up because I knew I could and should.

When they came for those on benefits,

I stood up because failing to protect those in greatest need would cost me my dignity.

When they came for the charities and the arts,

I stood up because I personally knew their worth.

When they came for those in public service,

I stood up because, since they had served me, how could I not stand up for them?

So will you stand up with them, with us, with me... before it is too late?

a new take Mark on the Pastor's. To answer your (rhetorical) question-I will stand shoulder to shoulder with you on these issues.
