Written to never forget the Holocaust. With all that is happening now, we are but a shrug away from history repeating...We cannot allow that to happen
They were herded off in freight cars
So silent in the night
A mass sea of humanity
that decided not to fight.
Was it that they believed
no harm would come to them
or that they were just the spoils of war
to be ruled by other men.
And so they passed the countryside,
the cities and the farms,
to wind up in the depths of hell
with numbers on their arms.
That was many years ago
but still we feel the pain.
The fear mixed with agony
That was riding on those trains.
Now something deep inside us
cries out in true despair
And like those doomed night riders
we gasp for breaths of air.
How could it have happened?
Our eyes well up with tears,
then anger overwhelms us
undiminished by the years.
I'll teach my son the horror ,
but I'll teach him how to fight.....
.....And hope to God his children
won't be dragged off in the night.
