"But a sudden piece of glass on a sidewalk. Or a nickel tune in a music box. A shadow on a wall at might. And I would remember."

"I'm talking about love, with me it is a science."

This is a preview for my final Photography project. Eventually it will be made into an iphoto book in response to the story "A. Tree. A Rock. A Cloud." by Carson McCullers

A True Hero

IRENA SENDLER The prize doesn't always go to the most deserving!!! Read on and you'll see why: Irena Sendler A 98 year-old lady named Irena recently died. During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an 'ulterior motive' ... 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 and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, for larger kids. She also 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. She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, 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 reunite the families. Most of course had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted. Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize ... She was not selected. Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming. LET'S SEND THIS ONE AROUND THE WORLD!!!!!!!! GOD BLESS HER ~ May she rest in Peace
This is a true female HERO story per
