Thank you, Ann

Ann Frank was born 84 years ago today. As a child, and even today, I remain mesmerized by her remarkable strength, depth of compassion and constant optimism.  She is a role model for the ages, continuing to teach us about ourselves, and about perseverance.  Shortly before meeting her untimely fate, she wrote in her crumpled notebook “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.”  Take a moment today to remember Ann.
