Bearing Witness

Whether it is the man who abuses his wife, the bully in the schoolyard, the mean boss at work, or a nation that gasses its own people, we should consider the words of Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel:

“I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere.”
