The English Surgeon

"There's a great quote by the Hungarian poet Faludy, who said that Soviet communism is like acid poured over metal—people made of base metals were destroyed, but people made of gold shone all the brighter. When I see people like Igor or Katya, that's what I feel. But how I would be if I had the acid poured over me? None of us knows until it happens; all one can do is see that some people have come through that, and it's very humbling."

-We watched this at work the other day. I think my favorite part is right at the end when he talks about humanity's responsibility towards others :) I tear up; can't help it. Give it a listen!
