Irena Sendlerowa, 1910-2008


The cartoon is 2 years old, created when Al Gore was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, diminishing the credibility of the Nobel Committee that worthy recepients like Irena had established for it. She was 98 when she passed away on May 12th. MataHarley has the details...just click on the cartoon.

If anybody deserved to win the Nobel Peace Prize....
it makes itself a laughing stock.

Her rewards will not be seen or felt here. Her rewards will be in Heaven. And she so richly deserves them.

God speed and rest in peace.

I repeat it: God bless her and may she rest in peace.

It's probably a no-brainer that she and Gore will not meet in the afterlife. :)

Even if all Al Gore says about global warming were true, for him to win the Nobel Peace Prize over this courageous woman is a travesty. I hope there is a way to state my displeasure to the selection committee. I would give them a piece of my mind!
