Holocaust Memorial Day

Today is a special day for so many. It’s Holocaust Memorial Day. Something we should never forget! Sadly, so few remember. So few are taught. And even fewer know the history of the pink triangle comes from this horrid and sick time as well.

Jews were forced to wear the star of David to mark them, but gays were imprisoned and marked with the down facing pink triangle. When the Allied Forces freed the Jews… the gays were not so lucky. It was still as crime in most of the world at that time.

Remember this day. Remember where the triangle comes from. And never forget our history. I never want to see a time where something like the Holocaust happens again. 

Non-complancency. Resistance. Stand up for others, not just self. Remembering the past and not allowing it to repeat…. 

What will you do to make sure this never happens again?
