The Prize ...

The prize doesn't always go to the most deserving.... 
Irena Sendler
 
There recently was a death of a 98 year-old lady named Irena. During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the  Warsaw Ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an 'ulterior motive' ... She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews, (being German.) Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids..) She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.. During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family.
Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.

Recently, Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize ... 
She was not selected. 
 
However, Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming and Barack Obama won for a speech on peace.
In MEMORIAM - 63 YEARS LATER 


It is now more than 60 years after World War II in  Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, 6 million Jews and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned and starved with many of the worlds people looking the other way!
 
Now, more than ever, with extremist Muslims claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it's imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because Muslim extremists are trying to do it again.

Trestin, it's not WE I'm worried about. I'm worried about what the limp wristed administration, in fear of a culture that has barely attained post-dark ages status, might do.

I gave peace prizes out for Halloween, Bunni. They have lost their appeal as of late.
