We will not walk in fear, one of another ..

“We will not walk in fear, one of another.
We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason,
if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine; and remember
that we are not descended from fearful men.
Not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate,
and to defend causes that were for the moment unpopular.
This is no time for men . . . to keep silent, or for those who approve.
We can deny our heritage and our history, but we cannot escape
responsibility for the result.
There is no way for a citizen of a republic to abdicate his
responsibilities.”

-Edward R. Murrow (March 9, 1954)
