Guest: Jack Mayer
Jack Mayer’s bio: Jack Mayer began practicing pediatrics in 1976 in Enosburg Falls, Vermont, a small town in
eastern Franklin County on the Canadian border. His was the first pediatric practice in that half of the county. He was a doctor there for ten years, often bartering medical care for eggs, firewood, and knitted afghans. It was a series of synchronicities that lead him to discover and write a wonderful book about a Catholic woman who saved 2,500 Jewish children in the Warsaw ghetto during WWII.
The Service: Spreading the word about the four Kansas teenagers who discovered Irena Sendler, a woman who saved 2,500 children from the Warsaw ghetto. Inspired by Irena Sendler, these teenagers, now young women in their 20’s are living examples of the power of one person to change the world and models for young people everywhere.
“We don’t have to be bystanders to what goes on in history,
even a small act of kindness or goodness makes a difference.
It matters.”~Jack Mayer
