Perhaps it is easy to feel prejudice against a group of people when you’re too afraid to think about a murder of 6,000,000 guiltless in 5 years, too shocked to see the ghastly capacity of the word hate. But when you watch the movies that are far too true in message; when you read the graphic novels of real-life accounts; when you hear Holocaust victims voices and see their faces, skeletons of an abuse too vulgar to speak of what they know they must; when you visit the museums, the exhibits, the graves of the innocent, ripped from our Earth by a forceful hand with no consideration or remorse; when you hear prominent leaders discuss the fallacy of the genocide, saying it wasn’t possible, couldn’t be feasible, and that no one is able to do something so drastic; when you know that one spark of hatred ignites a forest fire of abhorrence, impossible to put out; when you try to prevent it but know that it will happen anyway; and when you realize what mankind, as dark and devastating as it may be, is capable of—only then will you understand the power of the word hate.

this was an extra credit assignment for school when we learned about period sentences in my ap language arts class... i never realized how powerful it was until much after i received my grade.
