In the past three years I have gone from "how could the Holocaust happen?" to "OF COURSE the Holocaust happened."
Until we as humans come to understand and acknowledge that we are ALL worth it, and act accordingly, such horrible things will continue to happen.
We have responsibilities individually and collectively. We are not individually responsible for the collective, merely for our part in it. One person doesn't stop a holocaust, any more than one person makes it happen.
Where does YOUR power lie, in relation to what is wrong in the world? Are you stepping into it, for the good of all?
