Happy 89th Birthday Elie Wiesel


Today is the 89th birthday of the activist, author, and professor Elie Wiesel. There are people who have life stories that if we learn them, it empowers us to go farther than we ever thought was possible. He is one of those individuals. His family died in concentration camps and he became a Yale Scholar. He used his voice to make sure the world audience remembered what happened because it is the best way to insure it never happens again. The world is a better place because he was in it and still feels the loss that he has left.
