I have learned so much from Howard Zinn!
What an amazing person and an inspiration!
Governments Lie: Howard Zinn on Class Warfare, Immigration, Justice, Film and History (2007)
I would also recommend " A People′s History of the United States"
A REAL history lesson!
Irena Sendler (née Krzyżanowska, also referred to as Irena Sendlerowa in Poland, Nom de guerre Jolanta; 15 February 1910 – 12 May 2008) was a Polish Roman Catholic nurse/social worker who served in the Polish Underground during World War II, and as head of children's section ofŻegota, an underground resistance organization in German-occupied Warsaw. Assisted by some two dozen other Żegota members, Sendler smuggled some 2,500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw Ghetto and then provided them with false identity documents and with housing outside the Ghetto, saving those children during the Holocaust.
The Nazis eventually discovered her activities, tortured her, and sentenced her to death, but she managed to evade execution and survive the war. In 1965, Sendler was recognized by the State of Israel as Righteous among the Nations. Late in life she was awarded Poland's highest honor for her wartime humanitarian efforts. She appears on a silver 2009 Polish commemorative coin honoring some of the Polish Righteous among the Nations.
This really makes me smile!

I was never taught much about Fidel Castro other than he was the devil... But now as an adult I have done my own research and I have found that he is a great man that has changed the course of history and also changed the world and made it a better place for so many people! I was inspired watching this. It's such a shame that American history can't get passed the fact that they couldn't stop this one man and his small country and just educate with some simple facts! But then again I'm not suprised...
This is excellent viewing. Very informative and eduicational. A must see for anyone who believes in people and not company power.
One person can make a difference! Fidel Castro has!

Sun Jifa, a farmer in China, had his life changed forever when an explosive he planned on using for fishing went off prematurely. He lost his arms and when he couldn’t afford high-end, hospital-made prosthetics he opted for a cheaper set. Finding those to be less than acceptable, Sun started building his own pair of arms, which he currently wears. It’s an incredible story of ingenuity and personal strength.

"A wild raven perched himself on our fence and squawked for over an hour. I went to see what was up with him and saw that he had four porcupine quills stuck in him, three in the side of his face and one in his wing. This video shows my Mom taking out the ones in his face. Very bizarre he let us get that close and even more bizzare he let my Mom pull the quills out. He hung around for the day and was gone the next. Best of luck Wilfred (yeah, I named him) lol"

We've had 'Free Hugs' for years, but how about selling 'Deluxe Hugs' for the purpose of giving someone less fortunate a big Act of Random Kindness? That's what the young director of the ethical clothing brand Ark° did in Dublin recently, selling hugs for a euro so he could bring a homeless man out for a proper evening meal.
A cancelled wedding turned into something very very good! Thanks to Willie and Carol Fowler for thinking with their hearts and helping!
