Where will he appear next, this ghost of former nightmares?
The Interminable Ghoul…

He is most assuredly - alive!  Where will he appear next, this
apparition from era's past - this ghost of former nightmares?
He maneuvers everywhere and anywhere.
Anywhere where there is hate, where there is intolerance,
where there is narrow mindedness – he remains alive.
He remains alive so long as these evils continue to exist!
Bear this in mind… when he comes to your community.
Bear this in mind… when you hear his voice being vocalized through others.
Bear this in mind… when you hear an ugly epitaph, a minority assailed, or
any sightless, unreasoning assault on a certain culture - or any individual!
He remains alive because through these very circumstances - we keep him alive.
He is indeed… an apparition from era’s past, who, with our assistance - inherently
continues to cast a vaporous, dark shadow upon the annals of Man’s history.

Silence Him Forever
