Day 7: Hook ’em with a quote

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

– Dietrich Bonhoeffer a German priest and resistant during Hitler’s regime.

He could have stayed in U.S.A. during the war where he was teaching, but he felt he had to go back and be among those who fought against Hitler. The last two years before the war ended he was in prison  and in 9 of April 1945 he was hanged  39 years old for his involvement in the resistance.  During the time at prison he wrote many things to the encouragement of his church members.
