Have you seen this incredible video?
It’s about an amazing man, Sir Nicholas Winton, who saved many Czechoslovakian Jewish children during World War II. When he was honored on an English television show 50 years later, to his surprise 80 of those children who had grown into adults, stood up and gave thanks for his bravery.
You can read the rest of the story here.
What’s sad about this story is that this inspiring hero didn’t speak of what he had accomplished for almost 50 years because he was so disappointed that he didn’t save more children. Understandable, and yet wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could balance our disappointments by enthusiastically celebrating our triumphs, especially when it comes to supporting and saving children.
I give thanks for people like Sir Winton, and I celebrate his courage and spirit.
