My New Hero

Stumbling upon this footage today of  108 year old Alice Herz-Sommer, the oldest Holocaust survivor, brought sunshine to my rainy day.  Her heart defies logic and normality.   She shines.  Her smile.  Her voice.  Her eyes.  Her words.  Her compassion.  Her wisdom.  Her beauty.  Her music.  Her life.

Just watch and listen.

“I have had such a beautiful life. And life is beautiful, love is beautiful, nature and music are beautiful. Everything we experience is a gift, a present we should cherish and pass on to those we love”.- Alice Herz-Sommer
