Sunday supplement – 20 April 2014

A (possibly) weekly collection of things of interest, whimsy and nonsense.

Something a wee bit different this week. A collection of TED talks, that I think can be grouped together under the title:

THE ART OF THE POSSIBLE

If you watch only one, I recommend this one (you might need a coffee and some tissues):

This one is for those interested in things unseen

This one is about storytelling (and teaching)

This one is about citizenship and what it requires of us.

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me.
– Pastor Martin Niemoller
