"Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!"
I can't believe I nearly forgot to make a post about Anne Frank's 85th birthday. Anne has inspired me so much...to the point that I am in the process of doing a PhD on her and, in the process, writing a book on her legacy. Her talent, words and brief life have inspired me since I was a very young girl myself, just as she has done for so many young girls before me and will do for many young girls in the future. She was a truly beautiful spirit, and a harsh reminder of all that was lost in the Holocaust and all that is always lost when senseless crimes rob young people of their lives and future.
