    The lady plumber

    the following says it correctly :
    "The HOLOCAUST was not just a Jewish massacre; far less Jews were annihilated than were Christians, most being Lutherans" . . . sad that side of the story is NEVER said about the Holocaust.


    Remember this
    lady?


    Irena Sendler

    Died: May 12, 2008 (aged 98)
    Warsaw, Poland


    During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the
    Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist.

    She had an ulterior motive.


    Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of
    the tool box she carried.
    She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids.

    Irena kept 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.

    Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazi’s broke both of her legs and arms and beat her severely.


    Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out, In a glass jar that she buried under a tree in her back yard.

    After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and tried to reunite the family.Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.

    In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize.
    She was not selected.

    In MEMORIAM – 65 YEARS LATER
    I’m doing my small part by forwarding this message.
    I hope you’ll consider doing the same. It is now more than 65 years since 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, mostly Lutherans and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated!

    Now, more than ever, with 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.

    This e-mail is intended to reach 40 million people worldwide!


    Join us and be a link in the memorial chain and help us distribute it around the world.
    Please send this e-mail to people you know and ask them to continue the memorial chain.

    THE MANY ROADS OF LIFE AND A FEW WORDS OF WISDOM..

    GREAT TRUTHS THAT LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE LEARNED:
    1) No matter how hard you try, you can’t baptize cats..
    2) When your Mom is mad at your Dad, don’t let her brush your hair.
    3) If your sister hits you, don’t hit her back. They always Catch the second person.
    4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.
    5) You can’t trust dogs to watch your food..
    6) Don’t sneeze when someone is cutting your hair..
    7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.
    8) You can’t hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
    9) Don’t wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.
    10) The best place to be when you’re sad is Grandma’s lap.

    GREAT TRUTHS THAT ADULTS HAVE LEARNED:
    1) Raising teenagers is like nailing Jello to a tree.
    2) Wrinkles don’t hurt.
    3) Families are like fudge…mostly sweet, with a few nuts.
    4) Today’s mighty oak is just yesterday’s nut that held its ground.
    5) Laughing is good exercise. It’s like jogging on the inside.
    6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.

    GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD
    1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
    2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
    3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you’re down there.
    4) You’re getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
    5) It’s frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
    6) Time may be a great healer, but it’s a lousy beautician.
    7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

    THE FOUR STAGES OF LIFE:
    1) You believe in Santa Claus.
    2) You don’t believe in Santa Claus.
    3) You are Santa Claus.
    4) You look like Santa Claus.

    SUCCESS:
    At age 4 success is . . . . Not peeing in your pants.
    At age 12 success is . . . Having friends.
    At age 17 success is . . Having a driver’s license.
    At age 35 success is . . . . Having money.
    At age 50 success is . . . Having money.
    At age 70 success is . .. . Having a driver’s license.
    At age 75 success is . … . Having friends.
    At age 80 success is . . .. Not peeing in your pants.

    Pass this on to someone who could use a laugh.

    Always remember to forget the troubles that pass your way;
    BUT NEVER forget the blessings that come each day.

    Have a wonderful day with many *smiles*

    Old Post Cards

    Subject: Fwd: Old Post Cards
    From: Lou F

    Do y’all remember these? I sure do.

    Old Post Cards

    While being a “Helicopter Crew Chief Instructor,” I’d go to Washington DC , with a few buddies almost every weekend. We’d do the Smithsonian and all.

    On the way back to Ft. Eustis (125 miles), we’d often stop for something to eat.

    One time, it was getting late. We landed in Falls Church , VA. We saw an old general store that was still open. We walked around on the old creaky floors looking for Frito’s or something? I came across, an old wire frame post card holder. It was full of WWII post cards … Penny a piece!

    I asked the guy, "How much do you want for the Post Cards?" He said, “A penny. They have been here ever since he was a kid.”

    I counted them … 300 plus. I gave him $4.00 and I got the rack, too.

    In San Diego , I sold a bunch for $1..00 each. I still have a bunch to hand down.

    I know some of you are too young to recall these posters and WWII, but they were a part of my life and others who are now "older than dirt". These are great. Pass them along, especially to your older e-mail friends. I wonder whatever happened to this kind of thinking.

    I got a lump in my throat when I read this. I "grew up" thinking: patriotism, it is the AMERICAN way! I am glad to see that somebody saved them. The statement at the end says it all!

    These were our parents.


    What in God’s name have we let happen ?

    I guess we are the last generation to see, or even remember anything like these!

    Whatever happened?

    70 years of ”progressive” education happened!

    Political correctness (or "re-education") happened,
    Lack of God’s name happened,
    Lack of personal responsibility happened,
    Lack of personal integrity and honesty happened,
    Lack of respect and loyalty to our country happened,
    Lack of being an American happened.

    Did all of these things die along with common sense?

    I for one am still proud to be an American!

    If you are too …. Pass this along, so others can show their pride.

    SHE is A TEACHER! 

    Forwarded message
    From: Carol Z
    Date: 2 April 2017 at 22:54
    Subject: SHE is A TEACHER!

    This is a great message worth remembering.

    SHE IS A TEACHER!

    In 2006 this teacher made a statement to her students…Good story..true story..

    There is a great lesson here that the students at Little Rock High School will never forget. I would presume also that most students would never have given this a thought.

    NOW SHE IS A TEACHER!

    In September of 2005, on the first day of school, Martha Cothren, a History teacher at Robinson High School in Little Rock , did something not to be forgotten On the first day of school, with the permission of the school superintendent, the principal and the building supervisor, she removed all of the desks in her classroom. When the first period kids entered the room they discovered that there were no desks.

    ‘Ms. Cothren, where are our desks?’

    She replied, ‘You can’t have a desk until you tell me how you earn the right to sit at a desk.’

    They thought, ‘Well, maybe it’s our grades.’ ‘No,’ she said.

    ‘Maybe it’s our behavior.’ She told them, ‘No, it’s not even your behavior.’

    And so, they came and went, the first period, second period, third period. Still no desks in the classroom. Kids called their parents to tell them what was happening and by early afternoon television news crews had started gathering at the school to report about this crazy teacher who had taken all the desks out of her room.

    The final period of the day came and as the puzzled students found seats on the floor of the desk-less classroom. Martha Cothren said, ‘Throughout the day no one has been able to tell me just what he or she has done to earn the right to sit at the desks that are ordinarily found in this classroom. Now I am going to tell you.’

    At this point, Martha Cothren went over to the door of her classroom and opened it. Twenty-seven (27) U.S. Veterans, all in uniform, walked into that classroom, each one carrying a school desk. The Vets began placing the school desks in rows, and then they would walk over and stand alongside the wall. By the time the last soldier had set the final desk in place those kids started to understand, perhaps for the first time in their lives, just how the right to sit at those desks had been earned.

    Martha said, ‘You didn’t earn the right to sit at these desks. These heroes did it for you. They placed the desks here for you. They went halfway around the world, giving up their education and interrupting their careers and families so you could have the freedom you have. Now, it’s up to you to sit in them It is your responsibility to learn, to be good students, to be good citizens. They paid the price so that you could have the freedom to get an education. Don’t ever forget it.’

    By the way, this is a true story. And this teacher was awarded the Veterans of Foreign Wars Teacher of the Year for the State of Arkansas in 2006. She is the daughter of a WWII POW.

    Do you think this email is worth passing along so others won’t forget either, that the freedoms we have in this great country were earned by our U.S. Veterans?… I did.

    Let us always remember the men and women of our military and the rights
    they have won for us.

    A minute with GOD 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ken W
    Date: 31 March 2017 at 08:37
    Subject: Fwd: A minute with GOD

    Enjoy!!!! I did!

    A minute with GOD

    I spent a minute and hope you will too.

    I LOVE THE OPENING SENTENCE:

    With what is going on in the world these days, Heaven could end up a ghost

    town?

    My name is God. You hardly have time for Me. I love you and will always

    bless you.

    I am always with you. I need you to spend 60 seconds of your time with Me

    today.

    Don’t pray, just praise. Today, I want this message to go around the world

    before midnight.

    Will you help? Please do not delete it, and I’ll help you with some that are in need; even if just quiet time.

    Just dare Me! A blessing is coming your way. Please drop everything and

    pass it on.

    Why are prayers getting shorter, but bars and clubs are enlarging and

    expanding?

    Why is it so easy to worship a celebrity, but very difficult to walk with Me?

    Think about it, will you offer a prayer just now, or are you going to ignore

    doing so, because your don’t have time for Me?

    Consider forwarding this to all your friends. 80% of you won’t.

    I have said, if you deny Me before your friends, I will deny you on Judgment

    Day. What I say, I keep!

    When one door closes, I open two more. If I have opened doors for you,

    send this message along to others, bless them for Me.

    Thanks!

    God’s been good to me, so I’m forwarding!
