“To open eyes when others close them
To hear when others do not wish to listen
To look when others turn away
To seek to understand when others give up
To rouse oneself when others accept
To continue to struggle when one is not the strongest
To cry out when others keep silent…” 

- Excerpt from poem by Emmanuel Eydoux (Translated from the French by Jonathan Magonet)

Those who cannot remember the past...

"I don’t want anyone to say, when we look back at this moment, that they didn’t see the signs. I don’t want anyone to feign surprise. I don’t want people to say that they didn’t take it all seriously because they had faith that their fellow citizens would somehow see the light and not allow this candidate to rise."  - Charles M. Blow
