Sweeteners of Tea

"For she had a lively, playful disposition that delighted in anything ridiculous."

personhoodusa:

Irena Sendler was a Polish Catholic woman who volunteered to work as health inspector in the Warsaw Ghetto in order to smuggle out children. She rescued 2,500 children from the Nazis but was eventually discovered and severely tortured. She managed to escape and live until 2008. In 2007, she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, but the committee awarded the prize to Al Gore for making a movie about “man made climate change.” Two years later, President Barack Obama who advocates for the murder of millions of children was awarded the Nobel Peace prize. In a letter to the Polish parliament, Irena Sendler wrote, “Every child saved with my help is the justification of my existence on this Earth, and not a title to glory.”
May we fight the evil of our age with as much courage and humility as this amazing woman. http://ift.tt/1eXMoPd
