World History: Savior of Warsaw Ghetto Children Dies

Really interesting article here (Savior of Warsaw Ghetto Children Dies) about this incredible woman, Irena Sendler, who helped to save children from the Warsaw Ghetto during the Holocaust. She passed away this week. The Jewish commander of the Warsaw Uprising, Marek Edelman, said, "People who stand up for others, for the weak, are very rare. The world would have been a better place if there were more of them."

How about you? Are you someone who would stand up and sacrifice for others or is life all about looking out for yourself?
