    I am sorry for this, but I feel this picture is one of the most profound pictures I have ever seen of the holocaust. Women holding their children; waiting to be executed in the gas chambers. Did they know this was going to happen? What were their final thoughts?

    The last seconds.....this picture truly breaks my heart. I can't imagine the things running through her mind, in the last few seconds of her & her child's life. Nazis shooting women and children.

    Anne Frank. While Anne Frank is by far the most famous of children consumed by the fires of the Holocaust, she is but one of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of those whose cries of hopelessness and horror still reverberate down the decades. Anne died of typhus in Bergen-Belsen just weeks before the camp was liberated.

    Truth!!! Give less to yourself and more to your children, your friends, and even strangers. . .

    Physician Mae C. Jemison was born October 17, 1956, in Decatur, Alabama. On June 4, 1987, she became the first African American woman ever admitted into the astronaut training program. On September 12, 1992, Jemison finally flew into space with six other astronauts aboard the Endeavour on mission STS47. In recognition of her accomplishments, Jemison received several awards and honorary doctorates.

    Victoria Claflin Woodhull, born in 1838, married at age fifteen to an alcoholic and womanizer. She became the first woman to establish a brokerage firm on Wall Street and played an active role in the woman's suffrage movement. She became the first woman to run for President of the United States in 1872. Her name is largely lost in history. Few recognize her name and accomplishments.

    Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston marathon. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” However, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon. Kathrine later won the NYC marathon.
