Break The Law

I have no idea where the original of the following post came from, or if this is even close to the original version of it, but it speaks a truth.

The people who sheltered Jews in hidden rooms and attics and basements during the Holocaust were breaking the law. The people who smuggled 7,000 Jews out of Denmark during that same time were breaking the law. Schindler was breaking the law. The Underground Railroad broke the law. Harriet Tubman broke the law. Rosa Parks broke the law. Martin Luther King and John Lewis broke the law. Hell, the fucking Boston Tea Party broke the law.
If saving family, friends, strangers and innocent people in danger anywhere is breaking the law, then break the law. If standing up for freedom, our children, truth and justice is breaking the law, then break the law.
If the law is unjust, if the law is morally wrong, if the law strips people of their basic human rights for no reason other than to benefit others in their search for power or profit, then break the fucking law.
