Our Very Own Holocaust

Today, a 91 year old German women, a former SS Nazi in the infamous Auschwitz concentration death camp, was charged with 260,000 counts of accessory to murder by German high courts.

I read that in the news and thought about how that women was acting under the law of the land, it was allowed at the time and deemed "right." In fact, the regime felt that the Jews were "less than human" or "inferior" and could be murdered.

During the Nuremburg trials, when SS Nazi's were facing their death they tried to argue, "It was legal, we were following the law." The response before the rope? "You had an obligation to a higher law..."

SO, I ask you the reader to ponder that statement and the meaning behind it as we see arguments about whether an unborn baby is human or less than human  or inferior or not. When pro-choice advocates tell us how murder is "legal" and they are just following the law...will future courts begin charging doctors and nurses with thousands of counts of murder and accessory to murder? When they are on trial will they try to say that they didn't know what they were doing was wrong? That they were following the law? I don't think that day will come on this earth, though I hope it, I think we are going to relive history for a while with our own Holocaust.

Just because something is legal does not make it right. Slavery was once legal...does that make it right? no, NO, NO NO!!!

As we act like zombies that wander in a we ask ourselves if black lives matter, if police lives matter, can we just ask ourselves and tell ourselves that ALL lives matter?

I would encourage each of us to, at a minimum, look at some pictures online, look at some videos, and allow ourselves to be horrified for what we are allowing to happen simply because the screams are silent. What our country is doing should give us nightmares for the rest of our lives. Maybe we'll be so disgusted by our inaction that it will motivate us to DO something.

As I look at the pictures below, numbers of bodies aside, do you know what the difference between the pictures are? Not a damn thing.
