"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    I cannot believe this battle is the SAME as it was when I was a member of the BTW committee many moons ago. Shameful doesn’t begin to cover it. It’s actually inexplicable from the point of logic, never mind compassion, never mind common sense. What is the deal with the PHA? It’s almost 2017 and this is how you treat people? Get a friggin’ clue. You’re an embarrassment to the whole city and state.
