A Young Girl’s Voice

November 24, 2012

I had recently posted a blog about my experience at the Anne Frank Museum while visiting Amsterdam and somehow all the words were deleted in my post. All that remained was a single image of her. I’m making my second attempt to briefly blog about my experience.

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!  — Anne Frank

I had the honor of visiting the Anne Frank House in October and that day will leave an imprint in my life for eternity.  As I walked through the house where she once lived I was reminded of my time in middle school where I  learned about a young, courageous girl whose voice became the voice for many. I was saddened by the amount of suffering that took place during the Holocaust and I was inspired by Anne Frank’s ability to write so eloquently and her ability to touch me so deeply.

Sincerely,

Lena Jácome
