Something to think about

I snapped this picture at the Washington DC Holocaust Memorial Museum last summer because it says so much that we - as complacent / tolerant Americans - should relate and pay attention to.
What do I mean?
Well, when we reflect upon all the changes taking place in our country today, we have several choices: 1) We can bury our heads in the sand and pretend that our leaders are looking out for our best interests and that all is and will continue to be well. 2) We can sit back and watch the despicable activities of our elected representatives, the gutting of our nation, the looting of our treasury, the loss of our freedoms, etc and do nothing about it - thinking it's futile and that we really have nothing to fear - because it doesn't impact us personally anyway, or 3) We can get involved and demand (via regularly contact with our elected representatives, involvement in tea parties, on line polls, etc) that our government listen to and act upon the interests of the American people instead of the crooked Bankers, Corporations and Special interest groups...
Ultimately, I've always believed there were three types of people in this world
1) those who make things happen
2) those who watch what happens
3) those who wonder what happened
Unfortunately, the majority of our reality TV, Dancing with the Stars and American Idol obsessed citizens fall into the bottom two types... And unless that changes soon our era may be marked by similar quotations...
Think about it!
