At the onset of WWII Sir Nicholas Winton sought registration as a conscientious objector. In 1940 his service changed to the Administrative and Special Duties Branch of the Royal Air Force. He was initially an airman, rising to sergeant, then commissioned as an acting pilot. Later he was promoted to the rank of flight lieutenant.
In 1988 his wife Grete found a detailed scrapbook in the attic that detailed his benevolent private acts of kindness. He had organised the rescue and safe passage to 669 mostly Jewish Czechoslovakian children destined for the Nazi death camps in an operation known as the Czech Kindertransport. This touching video is the from the 1988 BBC Program "That's Life".
Go ahead... You tell me how one person can't make a difference! Just go ahead!
So - You're only one person! But what you do matters! It matters to all others who could be affected by your choices; By your kindness.
Be a conscientious objector in the holocaust against animals... Live compassionately.
