Irena Sendler, a beacon of hope for humanity

An amazing story of a true hero. She was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, but Al Gore was selected??
Remember this lady? I didn't either - Originally posted on Diasp.org An amazing woman who saved over 2500 infants and children during WWII in the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland. She eventually was captured and tortured and miraculously got out when she was scheduled for execution! She missed getting the Nobel Peace Prize 'by that much' in 2007. The year that Al Gore received it. She died in 2008.
Irena Sendler helped smuggle over 2,500 children from the Warsaw Ghettos. She is a true hero. Al Gore made a slide show about something he never actually knew anything about. The Nobel Peace Prize lost it's credibility when it awarded a liar and a cheat instead of a saint.
Irena Sendler. What an amazing woman! And shame on the nobel council or whatever for giving the nobel peace prize to Al Gore for a Global warming video and not to her!

Bob Marley is one of the people who really knows how to express my feelings through music. he is my inspiration. he taught is that the world is not just a blank canvas. you have your own creativity. explore and make a difference.
Bob Marley, 1980, Redemption Song: "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; None but ourselves can free our minds. Have no fear for atomic energy, 'Cause none of them can stop the time. How long shall they kill our prophets, While we stand aside and look? Ooh! Some say it's just a part of it: We've got to fullfil the book." - http://youtu.be/MJHgMD1S0bg | Bob Marley ° February 6, 1945 @ Nine Miles, St. Ann Parish, Jamaica.

Ray Charles helped racially integrate country and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records, most notably with his Modern Sounds albums. While with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company. Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business,” although Charles downplayed this notion.
