'The sin of silence'

To the Editor,
The sin of silence.  A closer study of Hitler’s Germany reveals that he met with Germany’s pastors as he sought their complicity.  And silence.   They chose to ignore the long trains of cattle cars packed with humanity on a journey to Himmler’s death camps.
Some were selected for inhumane experiments.  All others were stripped, shaved and herded into the gas ovens to be burned alive.  Babies! Children! Women! Men!
General Eisenhower ordered complete documentation of the Holocaust of millions of European Jews and minorities.  Ike knew some would attempt to re-write history and deny the Holocaust ever occurred.
Did hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops die for something that never happened?
Could the murders of law officers in the line of duty and mass shootings in our schools be a horrific result of our callousness in the murder of 60 million unborn babies?  How could we, Americans, allow nine judges to rule and legalize 60 million murders of innocent babies?
Are you keeping a list of disasters in America in the past 20 years?  55 years?
