>we have all contributed

I will not remain silent in order to protect my hero’s status, not will I forfeit my conscience to hide the truth under a shroud of patriotism………The fact that I contributed to what history will someday remember as a societal travesty on par with Nazi Germany’s Holocaust will torment me for the rest of my life.
