Courage by the Danes

Very few countries reached out to their Jewish communities to protect the Jews from the Nazi’s. One notable exception was Denmark where the government and ordinary citizens had the will and the courage to not sit on the sidelines in silence. This is the 70th anniversary of that event ,and I am privileged to attend a ceremony sponsored by the Danish embassy in Washington. Leaders and ordinary citizens realized it is the responsibility to protect and defend every member of the society. I only wish that those in my government would assume the same type of leadership. I believe like the Danish people the citizens are willing to do their part, but the missing piece is government leadership. Partisan politics are the hurdle that must be overcome to right the ship.
