Never Again

Basic Information

Description

This piece directly addresses the situation on America’s southern border, asking the questions – how will we treat others? Can we remember where othering has taken us in the past? It uses Jewish and Christian phrases about the treatment of strangers, combined with the clarion call, “Never again,” to remind us of the humanity of all people.

Anyone is welcome to perform this work, but please contact me beforehand.

Lyrics

Love your neighbor as you love yourself.

Never

Whatever you did to the least of these, you did to me.

Never

And neither shall you stand by the blood of a neighbor.

Never

Never again.
