Forwarded: The courage to say ‘No’.

from friends’ facebook wallpost:

The courage to say ‘No’.

The photo was taken in Hamburg in 1936, during the celebrations for the launch of a ship, the ‘Horst Wessel’. In the crowd, one person refuses to raise his arm to give the Nazi salute.

That man was August Landmesser. He had already been in trouble with the authorities, having been sentenced to two years hard labor for marrying a Jewish woman. We know little else about August Landmesser (born May 24, 1910, presumably killed February 1944), except that he had two children. By pure chance, one of his children recognized her father in this photo when it was published in a German newspaper in 1991.

音樂分享︰Louis Armstrong – You’ll Never Walk Alone

You’ll Never Walk Alone
— Louis Armstrong

When you walk through a storm,
Put your head up high,
And don’t be afraid of the dark.
At the end of the storm,
Is the golden sky,
And the sweet silver song of the lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown,
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart,
And you’ll never walk alone,
You’ll never walk alone.
