The saviour of 669.

Sticking with the theme of compassion (as inspired by Marc Barasch’s “Field Notes on the Compassionate Life”), here’s a post about Sir Nicholas Winton, a man who saved nearly 700 children in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. Sir Nicholas is part of what Barasch calls the “gold-standard group”: people who saved strangers during WWII at the risk of their own lives. And “the only recognition they could expect was betrayal to the SS by a craven neighbor.” Sir Nicholas is an inspiration for us to be kinder to everyone, especially those who are suffering.
