“Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

Never shield from accountability. Apathy and indifference are often the hidden cost of parental alienation – all features of moral bankruptcy.
“In the words of Dietrich Boenhoffer, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Each of us has great potential power to act to help those in need, and to influence others to act. Above all else, in regard to parental alienation as a largely unrecognized form of child abuse and domestic violence, the message to professionals and non-professional lay people alike should be, “Don’t be a bystander.” It takes moral courage to act, and in the case of parental alienation, action is urgently needed.”
