"Die Sonne scheint noch."

Noticed a review of a German film, Sophie Scholl - The Final Days over at Peace Takes Courage. Check out what Ava sez:
The movie was very well done and I recommend you see it. Watching the movie I got chill bumps more than once when listening to the Hitler supporters. The arguments were very similar to those used in defense of Bush. They claimed anyone who spoke out was a "traitor", "aiding the enemy", and "dishonoring the troops." We must make sure our society does not reach the end of the path it is headed down right now - a path similar to that which Germany went down. It's important for us to keep speaking out and never be silenced by those who lead our country. Power is in numbers, which is why we must let it be known that the majority does not support an unjust war.

Sophie Scholl's last words were "Die Sonne scheint noch," meaning "The Sun still shines." We will not be silenced and our society can not afford for us to back down.
More info about the film can be found here.
