LeT Us NeVeR FoRgET….

The prize doesn’t always go to the most deserving


 

Irena Sendler
There recently was a death of a 98 year-old lady named Irena. During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ‘ulterior motive’ … She KNEW what the Nazi’s plans were for the Jews, (being German.) 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 reunited the family. Most 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.

Please read the little cartoon carefully, it’s powerful. Then read the comments
at the end.
I’m doing my small part by forwarding this message. I hope you’ll consider
doing the same.

It is now more  than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe  ended This e-mail is  being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the  six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10  million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests  who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned,  starved and humiliated!

Now, more than ever, with Iraq , Iran , and others, claiming the  Holocaust to  be ‘a myth,’ it’s imperative to make sure the  world never forgets, because there are others who would like to do it again.

An AnGeLs ToUcH….

To me from my beautiful daughter Melanie…..
 
MUM
 
The other day I looked above
And saw an angel near
I asked a favour  for someone I love
And hoped
My message was clear
 
Please Angel
Let my Mum see
She’s loved so very much
And Angel
Will you promise me
To let her feel your touch.
 
The Angel spoke
And moved my way
That’s when it’s feather fell….
"This gift is yours to
give her this day,
it proves my promise well"

ReMeMBeR ThEsE????

      Remember…
Once you get over the hill, you’ll begin to pick up speed
. 

I love cooking with wine,sometimes I even put some in the food. 

If it weren’t for STRESS, I’d have no energy at all.

Whatever hits the fan
will not be evenly distributed.

Everyone has a photographic memory.
Some, like me, just don’t have any film.

I always know ….. God won’t give me more than I can handle.
There are times I just wish He didn’t trust me quite so much.

Dogs Have Owners ~ Cats Have Staff

If the shoe fits … buy a pair in every color.

Never be too open-minded, your brains may fall out.

Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian.
Not any more than standing in a garage makes you a car..

Bills travel through the mail…

at twice the speed of cheques.

If you look like your passport picture …. you probably need the trip.

Some days are a total waste of makeup.

A balanced diet is a chocolate cake in each hand.

Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places.

Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.

Junk is something you’ve kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.

Experience is a wonderful thing.
It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
 

By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.

Learn from the mistakes of others. Trust me… you can’t live long

enough to make them all yourself. I’ve tried!!

                                                             
  Have A Wonderful Day!!!!!

WeLL WoRTh ThinKinG AbOuT….

The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion in the Australia. Last month I attended my annual training session that’s required for maintaining my prison security clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Anglican and Muslim faiths, who explained each of their beliefs.

I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say. The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.

When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Imam and asked: ‘Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy War] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?’

There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, ‘Non-believers! ‘
I responded, ‘so, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?’
The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of ‘a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.’ He sheepishly replied, ‘Yes.’

I then stated, ‘Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope Benedict commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or the Archbishop of Canterbury ordering all Anglicans to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!’ The Imam was speechless!

I continued, ‘I also have problem with being your ‘friend’ when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question. Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?’

You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.  Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the ‘Diversification’ training seminar were not happy with this way of dealing with the Islamic Imam and exposing the truth about the Muslims’ beliefs.

In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in Australia. To elect a government of their choice, complete with Shari law. I think everyone in Australia should be required to read this, but with the Liberal justice system, liberal media and the political correctness madness, there is no way this will be widely publicized.

MoTiVaTiOnAL QuOTeS….

Remember:  Success is nothing but luck. Just ask any failure….
What ever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve….
Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there!
Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape….
In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins –
not through strength, but through persistence….
An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it….
There is nothing so wasteful as doing with great efficiency that which doesn’t have to be done at all….
Three things that never come back: the spent arrow; the spoken word; the lost opportunity….
