Alice Herz Sommers - An Inspiration and Reminder of What Is Important in Life

This is a remarkable video. I recommend that you take the time to view it. Alice will be 107 this month and she has an important story to tell. 
I was introduced to Alice Herz Sommer through my favorite garden blog, A Way To Garden by Margaret Roach. Margaret asked her readers what inspires us and what brings us peace. I contemplated her questions all day and thought about this video of Alice. It was a worthwhile contemplation and so I wanted to share it with you, my friends.
 I include reading, thinking, music, art and nature in my life along with gardening, cooking and animal care which all bring me inspiration.  My loving relationship with the good man who is my husband brings me peace. What about you?

I thought I sent a comment, but don't know if it went through so will try again. What an amazing woman and an inspiration to all of us. I'm inspired when I spend time at the hospice house. Patients that are so accepting of their end of life. Don't know how I would be. And grateful each day for my family, friends, and living in this free country.
