Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.

After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.

Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I was telling some of my students last night (especially the ones somehow even smaller than I am, including two very badass ladies) to look this performance up cuz it is legit inspiring.

There were like FOUR places where her height required her to JUMP when taller competitors could REACH. So cool.

I just watched this last night, and she is incredible. 5’ tall, 100# flat and she beasts through the course even making it up the ramp in one run. She’s positively epic. Makes me want to look into freerunning clubs around here.

This is mad! The only thing I’d definitely screw up is the shifting the pole pull-up looking bit.

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I’d hoped to give you forever
