What is our responsibility as Global Citizens to those who are persecuted or in danger elsewhere?
I think Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace prize Winner, Elie Wiesel, said it best:
"It is a question that Cain asked of God, having killed Abel: "Am I my brother's keeper?" And the answer, of course, is, we are all our brothers keepers. Why? Either we see in each other brothers, or we live in a world of strangers. I believe that there are no strangers in God's creation. There are no strangers in a world that becomes smaller and smaller. Today I know right away when something happens, whatever happens, anywhere in the world. So there is no excuse for us not to be involved in these problems. A century ago, by the time the news of a war reached another place, the war was over. Now people die and the pictures of their dying are offered to you and to me while we are having dinner. Since I know, how can I not transform that knowledge into responsibility? So the key word is "responsibility." That means I must keep my brother."
Elie Wiesel spoke the truth. The bitterness that struck Germany now threatens us here in no uncertain terms.
If we do not take care of our neighbors as our brothers and sisters, and remind the government very forcibly that they work for us (not vice versa) then we may well have the nightmare that Germany faced from 1930-1945.
Rocmike aka American Patriot after a late start you still have gotten over 8 straight hours of posting in. You have 2 hours under Dave Palmer, over 4 hours under Southern and over 2 hours under the Unknown Philosopher, who we all know who it is, and is still posting. You also threw some anonymous posts in. All repeating the same thing over and over and going to old questions and answers. GET A LIFE.
