There Can Be No Compromise

“I have the feeling that we let our consciences realize too late the need of standing up against something that we knew was wrong. We have therefore had to avenge it—but we did nothing to prevent it. I hope that in the future, we are going to remember that there can be no compromise at any point with the things that we know are wrong. . . . .”

Eleanor Roosevelt’s words upon returning home after a visit to a displaced persons camp following the end of World War 2 serve today as a warning and a reminder. We must summon the courage do what we know is right.
