Stop Another Crystal Night — Never Forget

True ignorance and history repeating itself.

It’s been said many times in many ways.

“Those that cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” by George Santayana.

In the great United States, we have semi-comfortable concentration camps. They go by a different name but their purpose is remarkably similar to the Nazi’s treatment of Jews before World War 2.

Refugees, immigrants, people seeking asylum are being treated like criminals and outcasts. Children separated from loving parents and traumatized for life. The United States is responsible for this atrocity of mind-blowing cruelty.

What is being done to remedy this situation? Not enough to nothing is the answer.

Except for fringe news, the majority doesn’t watch, not much attention is being paid to this situation. For a month it was a hot issue and now it’s a back-page event. Have we just moved on?

Where is the outrage?

This situation reminds me of a sensationally terrible anniversary marked today for a Nazi call to action 80 years ago. The night was titled Kristallnacht in German. That means Crystal Night.
