R.I.P. Naomi Bronstein

My deepest sympathies to the family of this truly remarkable woman. She was truly an angel on earth. She saved the lves of many children. hers was truly a life lived well.

MONTREAL — Naomi Bronstein, a Montreal woman who dedicated her life to helping orphaned and sick children in the Third World, died last week in Guatemala. She was 65.

Bronstein died in her sleep after years of poor health, including a heart condition.

Often called the Canadian Mother Teresa, Bronstein is best known for bringing Vietnamese and Cambodian orphans to North America for adoption in the 1970s.

Jeff Danziger, whose adopted daughter Kim was brought to North America by Bronstein in 1975, said Bronstein's humanitarian work with children was "unparalleled."

"She was completely selfless," he said Wednesday.

This is the sort of life we should study and celebrate, but we seem more interested in entertainers who, well, entertain and make lots of money doing it. Seems to me, Naomi's life sets a much more important example. I hope some talented writer gets a book out on her.
