Will We Be Like Hans And Sophie Scholl Or Will We Cower In Our Own Narrow Worlds?

Sophie Scholl was a member of the White Rose, a student group advocating resistance to the Nazis during World War 2.  She, along with her brother and other White Rose members, was beheaded on Feb 22, 1943.  She was 21 years old.

In her statement, Sophie embellished upon what Edmond Burke famously said about 200 years prior to Sophie's death: "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

Do the statements of Burke and Scholl describe you?  Be advised that if you are focused only on your own isolated world and you don't put any effort into fighting the atheistic culture of death, then that culture will come crashing into your world with devastating effect.  In that case you will bear much of the blame.  Look around you, please and wake up.

Lent is an appropriate time to change that.  An excellent way to do so would be to participate in 40 Days for Life.  Click on the link for a location near you.
