15. No, she isn't and you need an update on the phrase

that keeps pace to address wickedness. Run your strict terminology by http://neveragain.org/ that "serve people in danger, connecting at-risk individuals and communities". Run it by https://www.neveragain.com/about/ that "support a variety of causes by sharing their missions, goals, and stories with our audience." Run it by http://neveragainrwanda.org whose mission is Peacebuilding, Governance & Rights, Education, Research & Advocacy, Sustainable Livelihood, Great Lakes program and Youth engagement.

How about https://www.facebook.com/NeverAgainMSD/ "Run by survivors of the Stoneman Douglas shooting. We are sick of the Florida lawmakers choosing money from the NRA over our safety. #NeverAgain"

Or https://www.neveragainfoundation.org/ whose mission is "to bring hope, justice, and healing to victims of domestic violence murder by providing holistic non-profit legal representation in the civil, probate and family courts."

Oh-oh, what about it's earliest usage as title of a silent film https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0269620/

And https://neveragain.tech/ that refuses to "build a database of people based on their Constitutionally-protected religious beliefs. We refuse to facilitate mass deportations of people the government believes to be undesirable."

ďAnd Elie Wiesel, the Holocaust survivor and author who came to be associated with the phrase, also used it in the universal sense.

'Never againí becomes more than a slogan: Itís a prayer, a promise, a vow Ö never again the glorification of base, ugly, dark violence,Ē the Nobel laureate wrote in 2012.

"Never Again is a phrase that keeps on evolving. It was used in protests against the Muslim ban and in support of refugees, in remembrance of Japanese internment during World War II and recalling the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. And now the phrase is taking on yet another life: in the fight for gun control in America.

The list of usage is long. Never Again is now ubiquitous. Please, try to keep up instead of the unconscious attempt to derail the point of the OP.
