    I remember each of them as if they were yesterday, the polar plunge Jack, Flynn, and I did barely a week after I made the list. Being the first week of March in the Midwest we froze our assess off. I immediately regretted showing Jack my list at that point. He saw polar plunge and immediately signed us up for the senior plunge.

    The film Schindler’s list is set during WWII, and focuses on the horrible atrocities that happened to the Jews. I found it remarkable that the film was not portrayed from neither a German Nazi view, nor Jewish view. Schindler’s list shows the viewer the horror of the war and the suffering of those involved.
