First They came –>Pastor Martin Niemoller

Written during the days of Nazi Germany, after the rise of fascism, but can relate to the world today as we are perhaps moving to a more deadly situation in our world and in Pakistan.

First they came for the communists,

 and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.

 Then they came for the trade unionists,

and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,

and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then they came for me

and there was no one left to speak out for me.
