I will not be silenced , no matter how often people try to silence me.
I will not be silenced despite the threats.
I will not be silenced although a small voice in my head sometimes says”just give up”, but there is a louder voice screaming “No you fool, you have to keep going. You have a purpose so serve it. God gave you a talent so use it”
I will not be silenced because there are 1.5 million voices of Children pleading with me to tell their untold stories, To implant their names in people’s minds.
Children like Alex Weijel born 24 November 1939 in Enschede ,the Netherlands. Killed a few weeks before his 3rd birthday on 12 October 1942 in Auschwitz.
Alex eyes look at me and in my head I hear him say “Do not forget me”
How could I forget him if I had been born that time it could have been me who was killed.
I will not be silent because of the screams of those who never even saw the light of day, because they were carried in a womb of a mother who was seen as an inconvenience and were shot,stabbed,gassed or worked to death.
I will not be silenced; I will not be silenced.
