Of kewl dudes and chill pills...

Whenever there is a terrorist attack or a bomb blast...most of us convince ourselves that it doesnt matter to us. It reminds me of a poem I read somewhere...

"First they came for the Communists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me. "
