Martyrs, my friend, have to choose between being forgotten, mocked or used. As for being understood - never.

Freud was the son of a Jewish merchant who had to move his whole family to Vienna because he couldn't get work. He, as a boy, had to watch his father be mocked and abused on the street for being Jewish... You develop a thick skin and you develop a certain kind of wit to defend yourself.

God will not be mocked.
Ezra Taft Benson
