They came first.....

They came first for the Communists..
but I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews...
but I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the Unionists...
but I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Unionist.
Then they came for the Catholic...
but I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me...
and by that time...
there was no-one left to speak up for me.

Six Million and One

By Mary Carol McGlone

I wish I could turn back the hands of time and undo all the evil that was done
If I were there, would it today be said - gone are six million and one
Or would I have stood by and watched on as one by one you walked that death determined path
Would I have sat by silent with no protest until your very last
Watching on while mother's comfort their unknowing little ones
Or would they be able to say today - gone are six million and one

No, I wasn't there back then, I will never know what I would have done
But Israel, I am here today, even though I am only one
I won't sit by idly watching on as your enemies plan for your demise
I won't sit by silent while the world refuses to hear your cries
I guess today is a good time to prove to myself just what I would have done
Today, I will lift my heart, hands and voice, even though I am only one
