Never Forget

Irena Sendler, a Roman Catholic social worker, saved 2500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto during WWII. She has passed away, aged 98.

A remarkably brave woman who surely is now being rewarded in Heaven for her selfless courage.

Laura, this brought tears to my eyes. That one so noble and so brave graced this earth and left such an indelible mark on so many was staggering. I am in awe of those who not only rise to the occasion but are so convinced of the value of what they are doing, that they become so selfless that God can be clearly seen and clearly heard in each act of sacrifice.

On a sidenote, to read that she had been nominated along with Algore for the Nobel Prize was surprising. If he had had an ounce of humility, he would have turned right around and bestowed the honor on one who truly did deserve such acknowledgement. I'm not sure if this is more a biting comment on the political correctness and lack of integrity of the Nobel itself, or the sad, graceless lack of depth of Gore himself.

Maybe both.

I couldn't agree more with everything you said, Dana.

I would watch a movie based on her life if Hollywood were ever to make one.
