“To forget the victims means to kill them a second time,” he [ Elie Wiesel) told NPR. “So I couldn’t prevent the first death. I surely must be capable of saving them from a second death.”
Wiesel spoke out for victims of war and political tyranny around the world. But it was his advocacy on behalf of his fellow Holocaust survivors that was the work of his life.
“Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented,” he said. “Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant.”

Rise Up” – Tribute to the Orlando Victims w/ Andra Day, Demi Lovato & Nick Jonas #orlandostrong
The only response to hate is love. The only response to violence is peace. The only response to evil is good. So we in this room ,10000 strong in Orlando, rise up to bring healing and to bring good and to bring love so that death and evil does not have the last word, so that violence doesn’t have the last word. We, 10 000 strong, rise up together to let love win. We pray all of this together and together we say Amen!
