Mourn not the dead…
But rather mourn the apathetic throng
The cowed and meek
Who see the world’s great anguish and its wrong
And dare not speak!
Ralph Chaplin (a US workers’ rights advocate and conscientious objector World War I) cited by Robert Green, A thorn in their side: The Hilda Murrell Murder. Rata Books Christchurch October 2011.
