Words of a Wise Young Woman

It’s a wonder I haven’t abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.” ~ Anne Frank in her Diary

The world knows the story of the brave Jewish school girl in Holland who, with her family, hid from the Nazis, as millions of her co-religionists were slaughtered.

Anne chose to see the good in people. She never got to see the world once the Nazis were defeated, but her father brought her diary to the world and let us see a ray of light that pierced through the dark days.

If you haven’t read Anne’s diary, do. She would have been a formidable woman. She was an amazing person.
