“First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—

because I was not a communist;

Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—

because I was not a socialist;

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—

because I was not a trade unionist;

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—

because I was not a Jew;

Then they came for me—

and there was no one left to speak out for me.”

? Martin Niemöller

I’m a traditionalist, a lover of nature, a believer in what my thoughts are of right from wrong so I speak out where I can. Not always am I right nor always am I wrong and not always do my words come as I’d planned or hoped but my opinion is stated. Generally I try to be tactful but I find sometimes that people with their ears full of self don’t recognize tact so occasionally I need to be a bit blunt.

Tactfully blunt is a hard learned act and often not successful but I’m not walking away.

Little drops of water here and there can grow enough to burst a dam.
