Yom HaShoah

We must never forget!

It’s not what ‘they’ did
to ‘them’
it’s what humans did
to other humans.

We must look, listen,
see, and know
we are all
guilty

of power over those weaker,
of prejudice without reason,
of judgment cruel enough
to harm,
of choices hard enough
to force us to do what we thought
we would never do,
of hatred strong enough to kill.

Remember.
Weep.
Learn.

It must not happen again.
Because
we
remember.
