“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.” Elie Wiesel
Elie Wiesel survived Auschwitz, Buna, Buchenwald and Gleiwitz during the Holocaust. He had a front row seat to some of the great injustices man comitted.After being liberated, Wiesel went on t0 live in a French orphanage for a few years and soon entered into writing – his life’s passion.
His goal in life was simple: to ensure that no one forgot what happened to the Jews. He once stated that to remain silent and indifferent was the greatest sin of all.
Indifference is the greatest thief of our lives. It is the very nothingness that we most fear, yet are barely able to recongnize. No one has ever been remembered for not caring. That is because to not care is to not exist. Grab hold of your conscience and soul and take heed with urgency; then act!
