May 12th is a day of remembrance: Irena Sendler passed away on May 12, 2008.  Even though nine years have gone by since her death, her legacy is growing stronger and stronger. This story shares the power of one person to change the world. It is more important than ever before.  Holocaust education and the need to “never again” allow this kind of tragedy to happen is so significant.

Irena’s light continues shining in the darkness. We remember her wonderful, caring personality and her concern for people in this world. She was a giant of our time.

Also, Happy Birthday to Megan Felt, one of the founders of Life in a Jar, on May 12th.
