Learning About Humilty From a Gentile

I was very moved by a recent article in Haaretz. Sir Nicholas Winton, was released from a hospital in Prague after a brief battle with bronchitis and went home to England on a Czech military plane. You may be asking who is Sir Nicholas Winston? Sir Nicholas is responsible for saving 669 Czechoslovak-Jewish children on the eve of World War II from the Nazis by arranging for them to go to Britain.His great heroic deed may have gone unnoticed had his wife not found a scrapbook in the attic with information regarding his heroism. He kept it all to himself and no one knew for 50 years what remarkable things he had done. That is humility in it's greatest form. Sir Nicholas Winton is 98 Years old, may he continue to live a long and healthy life.
