"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

    As you said Steve, “Resiliency means dealing with the effects of a problem. Mitigation goes towards the cause of the problem. Think about nuclear weapons. Mitigation is taking nuclear weapons off the table and preventing their development and use. Resiliency is “Duck and Cover” and fallout shelters in public schools.”
