Are you Outraged?

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana

The Holocaust began as a denial of rights to a group of people that quickly multiplied into many groups of people and the deaths of millions. Vladimir Putin is doing the same thing in Russia. Laws against homosexuality is just the beginning. Which group will become the next target? Jews, Christians, people of color... Who is next?

In Greece, (a country on the brink of financial collapse), they are placing undesirables in internment camps? Who are the undesirables?  They are migrant workers, recent immigrants, drug users and the transgendered. Who is next?

In the United States there is a war against women. Laws are being passed telling women what they can do with their bodies. Who is next?

Are you outraged yet? Well you should be. We need to get angry about what is happening around the world. I have only mentioned a small number of atrocities that are currently going on. There is more, so much more and people are dying because of it. 

What can you do? GET ANGRY! BE VOCAL! Talk to your friends, talk to your family. Write and/or call your state representatives. Blog about it. Talk about it. Tweet about it. If we don't stop it now it will only get worse. DO SOMETHING!
