Random thoughts and insights – always shaken, never stirred

When They Came for Terri

leave a comment »

First they came for the fetuses,

and I didn’t speak up,

because I wasn’t a fetus.

Then they came for the brain-damaged and retarded,

and I didn’t speak up,

because I wasn’t brain-damaged and retarded.

Then they came for the elderly and infirm,

and I didn’t speak up,

because I was young and healthy.

Then they came for me,

and by that time there was no one

left to speak up for me.

With apologies to Martin Niemoller for the obvious paraphrasing …
