Thank-you Cal for posting this refreshing story. So good for the heart.

“We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ― Viktor E. Frankl

The crime against humanity that occurred at that time are painful to recount, so it's not surprising that the brave and heroic acts of so many good people are often overlooked. We need more stories like this one.
