Incredible Adventure with a Holocaust Survivor
Friends called last night and invited us out to Sterling, IL to hear a Holocaust survivor speak. I'd never heard a Holocaust survivor speak in person before so we were looking forward to the evening. But I really didn’t know what to expect. To be honest, I half expected to listen to a rickety old lady squawking something that I couldn’t hear. Instead, we were greatly surprised to hear a very fluent, very entertaining, very enthralling presentation from a very distinguished and accomplished lady, Marion Blumenthal. As my wife said afterwards, we couldn’t get enough of her words and could have listened to her all night. Our boys had a rare and distinct honor of hearing something that their children will not get to hear, a first-hand account of the Holocaust nightmare. It was incredible! Marion had so many stories and painted such a vivid picture of what happened there. It was so alive! Throughout her presentation, she challenged kids young and old to respect others, honor parents and elders, give without thought of getting, and so much more.
Here’s her website: http://www.fourperfectpebbles.com
Tonight was an experience I will remember the rest of my life.

Always give lots of credit and take very little. Seems to make everyone happier. Conversely, take as much responsibility for mistakes as one can assume! - Dr. Bobo
