“a picture speaks a thousand words”… so let these pictures “speak”

These photos are from a powerful 2 minute video posted by Rudy Rochman (link below). They tell a story – a very powerful story.  The story is of the choice people like you and I now face – and will increasingly face in the days ahead: the choice between apathy or taking a stand. 

Be inspired.


Antisemitism is real and very much alive.

Not only in Europe, but in America.

On October 6, 2016, a man came to Columbia University in New York City where he harassed, insulted and spread antisemitic lies – calling Jews “Christ-killers” and praising Hitler.

Some students supported the man…

Others walked by and ignored him.

Perhaps your reaction right now is:

So, it’s just one guy.

Perhaps like many others, you’d just walk by and do nothing

Consider another option.

[unpause]

 


 

Watch “just one guysilently take a stand.

…then watch another person silently join him.

Two people now taking a stand.

…then more people joined them.

The time for apathy has passed

 

Apathy resulted in 6 million Jews being murdered during the Holocaust. 

 

Yet, even then there were people like Corrie Ten Boom and Dietrich Bonhoeffer that would not – could not remain silent and do nothing.

What about now?

What about you?
