Adaptation of verse found on the gravestone of German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) for us today: 

First they came for the Native Americans
 and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Native American.
Then they came for the Blacks,
 and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t Black.
Then they came for the Muslims.
 and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Muslim.
Then they came for the immigrants and their children,
 and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t an immigrant or a child.
Then they came for the school children,
 and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a student.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.

Peace – Stay Safe
