the only person who can stop you from being you, pd lyons

you know the only person who can stop you from being you is yourself.

civil rights, human rights – these have been constant struggles through out history.

there is only ever one choice – stand up or give up.

do what you can and do not condemn those who don’t do “more”.

if we all do what we can we will not fall to the oppressor.

right now by simply not surrendering, by not giving up,

you and I

we have begun.

The White Rose (German: die Weiße Rose) was a non-violent, intellectual resistance group in Nazi Germany led by a group of students and a professor at the University of Munich. The group conducted an anonymous leaflet and graffiti campaign which called for active opposition against the Nazi regime. Their activities started in Munich in June 1942, and ended with the arrest of the core group by the Gestapo in February 1943. They, as well as other members and supporters of the group who carried on distributing the pamphlets, faced unjust trials by the Nazi People’s Court (Volksgerichtshof), and many were sentenced to death or imprisonment.
