Stand Up and Be Counted



Some years ago Premier Khrushchev was speaking before the Supreme Soviet and was severely critical of the late Premier Stalin. While he was speaking someone from the audience sent up a note: "What were you doing when Stalin committed all these atrocities?"


Khrushchev shouted, "Who sent up that note?" Not a person stirred.


"I'll give him one minute to stand up!" The seconds ticked off. Still no one moved.


"All right, I'll tell you what I was doing. I was doing exactly what the writer of this note was doing--exactly nothing! I was afraid to be counted!"
