Norman Rockwell, A Family Tree (private collection, 1959), oil on canvas.


First, they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew, so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me.

Martin Niemoeller (1892-1984)


I asked I asked for strength that I might achieve; God made me weak that I might obey.

I asked for health that I might do great things; I was given grace that I might do better things.

I asked for riches that I might be happy; I was given poverty that I might be wise.

I asked for power that I might have the praise of men; I was given weakness that I might feel the need for God.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life; I was given life that I might enjoy all things.

I received nothing that I asked for; My prayer was answered.

~A prayer by a Confederate Soldier~

Supposedly, this prayer was recovered from his

body in Devil's Den after the battle of Gettysburg.
