Who are Social Workers Suppose to Be?

They are suppose to be Irena Sendler; Died 12 May 2008 (aged 98)
Warsaw, Poland; who knew:
“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.” Aristole

http://www.snopes.com/politics/war/sendler.asp the stop to verify almost anything at all shows that Irena Sendler should have received the nobel peace prize during her life; for saving 2500 infants and children during WWII; read her story at www.irenasendler.org ; moreover and inspiring is that after being severely beaten by the Nazi's she went back after the war to try and reunite children with their families after having preserved ALL the children's names in a glass jar she buried in her yard; sadly she found most had lost families to the gas chambers and ended up in foster care or adoption. 

This women is the social worker that anyone under taking the position should aspire to; anything less than excelling to irreproachable ethics and you should choose another profession.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.”   Aristole
