"I saw this posted on a friend's page and I thought I'd like to share it with you guys. Do you see this lady? You, more than likely, have no idea who she is. Her name was Irena Sendler. She died May 12, 2008 in Warsaw, Poland
During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a plumbing/sewer specialist. But she had an 'ulterior motive'. With Irena being German, she KNEW what the
Nazi's plans were for the Jews.
Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried. She also had a burlap sack in the back of her truck for the larger kids. She 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. Eventually she was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, and 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.
In 2007, Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize.
She was not selected. Who did win that year?
A man by the name of Al Gore, for a slideshow on "Global Warming".
Who won it in 2009?
President Barack Obama, "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."
I'm sure you guys have heard this story before, but maybe didn't have a face to put with it. Now you do. I just find it incredibly sad that the priorities of this world are so out of whack that the truly heroic, the true humanitarians among us are overlooked when it comes time for their just dues. Apparently the "World" hates Jews so much that amazing stories of courage, valor, and staring death in the face on behalf of God's people, takes a back seat to two of the biggest phonies that have ever hit the world's stage. 0bama and Gore embarrasses me, and I don't claim them as fellow Americans."
I don't know about the rest of you but this is really a disgrace. I fully agree with my friend's commentary on the subject.
This woman was brave beyond measure, she knew that if she were caught she would be tortured but continued to defy the Nazi Regime to save all those innocent children.
It makes me sick that the president not only supports infanticide but is quite vocal in supporting an organization that makes over a billion dollars a year by executing the innocent in the womb.
He or Gore should be ashamed for accepting such a prestigious, well, it used to be a prestigious reward, now it's all political and disgusting.
