I have known this story for 20 or so years and it always bring to me tears to my eyes.

This year Sir Nicholas Winton was nominated for the Nobel Peace price. Its the third nomination attempt and its based on a petition organised by students and signed by more than 200 000 people. Hope it will work this time.

Every time I have a bad day, or something doesn't work, I think of people like Sir Nicolas, who used their bad days to do amazing things. To actually save so many lives in such a dark time is such a huge act of heroism that I draw inspiration from that.

Of course, we cannot hope to possibly achieve anything as important as this, but that should not stop us striving.
