Amidst all the horrors, all the crimes against humanity committed by people, there are always the Sophie Scholl’s too. Those are the ones we should remember and struggle to emulate.
Sophie Scholl was a German woman executed by the Nazis for distributing anti-Nazi pamphlets. Prison officials, in later describing the scene, emphasized the courage with which she walked to her execution. Her last words were: “How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to offer themselves up individually for a righteous cause? Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go.”
