“Given where we stood, I asked Eva what promise she would want everyone in the world to make and keep. She thought for a moment, then she said ‘To vote. Because when good people don’t vote places like this happen.’ I walked out of that barracks, wrote this card and rubbed it against the ground at Auschwitz. Eva Kor was a Holocaust survivor who has since passed.
It was privilege to know her. It is my personal responsibility to be an informed voter and to vote in every election, not just presidential cycles. People far braver than I died for my right to vote and ought not to forget that.”–Alex Sheen, Founder of because I said I would.
