It Is Our Duty To Remember - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet

It is our duty to remember,
To keep those Memories alive,
Of the atrocities in Nazi Germany,
Between Nineteen Thirty Three and Forty Five.

As the U.K. Holocaust Memorial Day approaches,
Let our voices speak out loud,
Against all Anti-Semitism and Oppression
Occurring throughout the World.

Let us pray for Peace throughout the World,
May we All live in Peace with each other,
Men and Women, Kith and Kin,
Living happily, each Mother, Father, Sister and Brother.

As Ceremonies throughout the Nation,
Take place on this Important Day,
Held on Twenty Seventh of January 2016,
For the Deceased we Remember and Pray.

Whatever Faith we Practice,
Or even if we have none,
Peace is better than War,
So that Monsters we do not become.

    This wonderful poem should be read at the UK Memorial Holocaust Day.
    Millions should hear it and understand what has been done to the Jews.
    And still, after all the atrocities and murder, it hasn't stopped and Jews, Cristian's and others are being
    eliminated, assassinated in the name of religion.
    We will not become monsters, we are monsters if we allow our governments to do nothing to stop innocent carnage.
    Poets and All of us, united in peace, we are for Life and its sanctity
