My sister told me that when she was little and saw white people in make up commercials and never black people, she thought it was just because white people were ugly and black people were beautiful and didn’t need make up
During WWII, Irena got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ulterior motive.
Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried. She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids.
Irena kept 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. Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazi’s broke both of her legs and arms and beat her severely.
Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out, In a glass jar that she buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and tried to reunite the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.
In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize.
She was not selected.
Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.
When I was in Germany I literally saw a group of people destroy a man with their eyes because he dared to J-walk. I think he was French, talking rapidly on his phone, and just passed right by everybody to cross the street…the looks from those on the other side of the street were nothing short of scandal and murder
You don’t do that
Alternatively, when I was in Boston I watched two German men, tourists, struggle internally with themselves with the concept that nobody in Boston follows the rules of the light - you just cross when a car isn’t coming at you. The look of fear and confusion on their faces made me want to go up to them and take their hands and walk wtih them across the street.
