Not forgotten

My Anthropology class has the best professor.  His lectures are brilliant- even his text is interesting to read. He specializes in the Danish Jews, and we've begun that case study in lecture recently.

Tuesday, I discovered I really DO have a soul, as the accounts of the rescue of Danish Jews in 1945 almost had me teary. That is some serious good deed-age. And the funny part is, no one really knows why or how it happened. And it wouldn't happen here in America because of our sacred Individualism, but still... it's nice to think that kind of thing can exist in this world.

I guess it was a fluke, but as a liberal, I hold it as proof of the basic goodness of humankind.
