Yom HaShoah – Never Again?
April 19, 2012 1 Comment
Never Again! I helped start a group by that name at the University of Denver – focusing on Holocaust and genocide awareness and action. And because the Holocaust is tied to other genocides and awareness isn’t enough. Action is also needed. Yet, more needs to be done. Because genocide and the Holocaust are now terms that have been perverted to fit the use of so many who are looking to add a little drama, or a little extra “oomph,” to their cause. But that’s exactly it – they do not add to a cause – they are the cause. They are the cause because nothing should ever happen like this. And nothing like this should ever happen again and again.
So, learn what’s happening around the world. I know I was well informed about genocide. But then I got busy. Well, other people got busy too – killing entire groups of people because of who they are. I challenge myself and everyone else to do more, to do better. Because “Never Again” seems to have just become “Again” – and that should Never happen.
