Chiune Sugihara.

I stumbled upon History Channel this afternoon while busy typing some work which has to be done by tommorrow. It was Chiune Sugihara documentary. He was the man who saved six thousand Jews who were trying to escape Nazi cruelty. His courage and bravery is now praised by thousands of Jews. Many tributes have been made to Sugihara, who has been recognized as Righteous Among the Nations.'

Many years later, one of those he saved waited 4 years to meet him to ask why he took such tremendous risks to help those he didn't know. He said:

"In life, do what's right because it's right, then leave it alone".

Very inspiring.
