Sterner Stuff

An obituary in the Times of London for a heroine of the Warsaw Ghetto. Money quote from her last year in response to being honored by the Polish Senate.....

“Every child saved with my help and the help of all the wonderful secret messengers, who today are no longer living, is the justification of my existence on this Earth, and not a title to glory.”

The kind of person who makes me feel a little ashamed of myself for not doing more good in life.
