Happy Heroes Day

It’s Heroes’ Day today in Mozambique.
Who’s your hero? My hero for today is anti-Nazi theologian Pastor Martin Niemöller, best known for writing the following:

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.
