Bear Witness

I visited the National Holocaust Museum last week while I was in Washington DC. It was incredibly moving, and I highly recommend the experience to anyone and everyone who can get the opportunity to go. Whenever you put someone in a box, whenever you view people as a category rather than as individual people, you open the door to atrocity and horror, pain and shame. We must never forget, and we must be ever vigilant of how this happened, and how it can happen again. Too many people who walked that path did not realize the direction they were going until it was too late. People do not usually set out to be the monster or the villain. Guard your intentions, yes, but that is not enough. Know where you are going, be aware of your results, and change course as reality demands. What you do matters. Make sure it is actually what you intend.
