Quote of the Week - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act." --Dietrich Bonhoeffer

People who do not speak up when they notice that something evil is being done, can be viewed as cowards.

Indeed, people have an obligation to speak up when they observe evil, in order to help to eliminate that evil.

Failing to speak up against evil, then, only encourages that evil to continue.
