Poem of the Day

Friedrich Gustav Emil Martin Niemöller  (14 January 1892 – 6 March 1984) was a German theologian and Lutheran pastor.  He is best known for his opposition to the Nazi regime during the 1930s and for his widely-quoted poem “First they came.” The poem has many different versions, one of which begins “First they came for the Communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Communist,” and concludes, “Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
