      of course).  Thanks Yas.  

      The sig line I found apply to many of the injustices that we face in this world.  The full quote is:

      “In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.”
      ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn from "The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956"

      But we are limited to 255 characters so I had to abridge it.

      “In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it … we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.” - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
