Uplifting Tuesday today had it’s roots at the end of WWII.
“An Auschwitz survivor and the Scottish commando who saved her celebrated their 71st Valentine’s Day together this week. John Mackay, 96, helped liberate a number of prisoners from the concentration camp—including Hungarian Jew Edith Steiner, now 92. The two met at a village dance to celebrate the prisoners’ liberation and have been together ever since. They married in 1946 and eventually settled in Dundee, Scotland—where, this year, the couple rang in Feb. 14 at a party in their senior citizens’ home. “It’s lovely to have such a real example of true love with us,” said one staff member.”
We also had another Uplifting Tuesday story, and this one was cookie related!
“After a Girl Scout selling cookies was robbed at gunpoint, California cops reached into their own pockets to make things right. Harshita Phardwaj, 12, and her mom were running a cookie stand outside a Union City supermarket when a man threatened them with a gun and stole all their cash. Local police are still looking for the culprit, but decided to help Phardwaj’s fundraising drive by buying all of her remaining cartons of Samoas, Thin Mints, and other Girl Scout Cookies — donating $1,000 in total. “We did what we could to make it loving, compassionate, and healing,” says Officer Lisa Gratez.”
Our lyrics for song poetry today were:
“Then like a hero who takes the stage when
We’re on the edge of our seats saying it’s too late”
This song is MercyMe’s ‘Flawless’!
And our Name That Tune today was Mighty to Save from Laura Story!
Congrats to Darcy of Howard who guessed our Song Poetry correctly, and to Landis of Belleville who won our ‘Name that Tune’ today!
They will both be receiving a $5 gift certificate to Troyer’s of Apple Valley!
Our word of the day today is ‘Cabotage‘ (noun * KAB-uh-tahzh)
