His name is Sir Nicholas Winton. He just turned 105 years old. That's an accomplishment in itself.

How does it compare to Saving 669 Children from the German "Camps" by arranging safe passage to Britain in 1939.

His actions remained a secret until his Wife found all of the "Evidence" hidden in the attic a number of years ago.

He hid it and kept it as HIS Secret because he felt there might be repercussions on the children if they were ever discovered.

How large has that 669 now become? Has it taught them anything? You'll see what it has taught them in the Video

Watch for the Dali Lama and his very Wise Words about "The Future".

""Restoring Your Faith In Humanity"

I hope you enjoy the video and perhaps receive a little Inspiration from it.

Blessings To All: Rick

(MY OPINION ONLY!) It's unfortunate that more Members are not watching this video or are perhaps just not commenting if they have watched it.

I've watched many hundreds of videos on YouTube, some similar to this one.

BUT! This one tugs hard at your Heartstrings. It brought a few tears to my eyes. It is/was an accomplishment by Sir Nicholas that I have never seen matched or anything near it.

I've seen a number of videos on the Nazi Death Camps and the Very Graphic Horrors that went on there.

These children were spared from that by One Person. The original figure of 669 has now blossomed into ???? 2/3/4 Thousand? Some of whom have carried on the "Goodness" of what they realised this is all about

In fact neither they or their parents would even be here today if this "Event" had not happened.

That's it. Remember please this is NOT intended to chastise, find fault, or criticize anyone. I think MY Strong Emotional Reaction, possibly of a Sub-Conscious nature has a lot to do with it.

Best Regards To All: Rick

Thanks for your comment Bill. "rip you guts out" is one way of putting it. However you put it, it TUGS HARD at something! I'm pleased that you "enjoyed" it and you're certainly very welcome.
