Irena Sendler: a Heroin

Irena Sendler (1910-2008)

Irene Sendler was a true heroin.  May her life be an encouragement to those who do without being acknowledged- and to those who see that the system of honor and heroism in which we now live is sparse when it comes to those we hold in high esteem and why.

Sports personalities, celebrities, politicians and the like, often are void of one thing… character. Being a “character” has replaced having it.

“An unfamiliar name to most people, but this remarkable woman defied the Nazis and saved 2,500 Jewish children by smuggling them out of the Warsaw Ghetto. As a health worker, she sneaked the children out between 1942 and 1943 to safe hiding places and found non-Jewish families to adopt them.” ~Jewish Virtual Library

This is an excellent story about a woman of courage and character to share with girlfriends, sisters and daughters. It proves for us that we can and will do what we have to do, if ever we need to do it.
