Changes to the quotes sidebar

Today after a great lunch at Joe's Crab Shack with Elijah - Thanks E - as I drove around running errands, I finalized my decision to remove John McCain's quotation from prolurker's sidebar during the Presidential Campaign. While I deeply appreciate McCain's words, and had noted after the quotation the full citation for them, but it still feels too much like a political endorsement that is contrary to my beliefs. So I have replaced McCain's words -

Don't let fear convince you that you're too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not the proof of cowardice.
McCain, John (2004, September). In Search of Courage: Finding the Courage Within You. FastCompany, 51-56.
with words that are also meaningful to me and actually better relay my concerns for the current state of the world.
When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist.

When they locked up the incurably sick, I remained silent; I was not incurably sick.

When they came for the Jehovah's Witnesses, I did not speak out; I was not a Jehovah's Witnesses.

When they came for the Jews, I remained silent; I wasn't a Jew.

When they came for the people in occupied countries, I remained silent; I wasn't a person in an occupied country.

When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.
version based on Rev. Pastor Martin Niemöller's (1892–1984) 1946 speeches. see Prof. Harold Marcuse's Niemöller Quotation Page for an explanation of this version.

Rev. Pastor Niemöller was a distant relative of my childhood neighbor Clarence Niemoeller, a man for whom I have a deep and abiding love and respect and that goes for his wife Etta too - both have moved on to the next life and are missed here. Clarence bore a resemblance to the Rev. Pastor. Not that you can tell from his 1917 sophomore year group picture the only photo of him I found online.
