12:45 of Hope for Humanity

These are not easy times, and much of what is in the news is worrisome and alarming. I think we all need to find hope and joy where we can.

This New York Times Op-Doc runs for twelve minutes and forty five seconds. A 92 year old woman talks about her and her young husband’s desperate leap from a train headed for Auschwitz. To save their own lives, they had to abandon her father, on the train with them and desperately ill.

Many years later, she got a message.

I encourage you to watch the entire thing. Let me know if you found it, as I did, deeply touching and hopeful.
