Awesome quote...

On CBC the other day they played a clip of a rabbi at a Vietnam war protest. When asked why he was there the rabbi replied that he was protesting because he couldn't pray anymore. When he tried to pray, he explained, all he could see was napalm burning children. He summed it up with the following quote, which I hope I never forget:

"In a free society some are guilty, but all are responsible."

I like that. So I had to google it. It was Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel who said it. Here's a link:
