“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 Niemoller (1892 - 1984)
This quote is the thing I think about each day. How each of us has a choice and a chance - to stand up for what is right - in big and small ways. To be willing. To speak up. To honor ourselves by honoring each other - with the courage of our convictions.
About the original art: I painted this piece using acrylics and watercolors. Each letter was drawn and painted using a palette I consider to be pensive. The colors of consequences.
Available as a postcard, notecard and poster. The poster measures 14 by 16 inches.
