I’ve never read The Diary of Anne Frank. I caught a film, Freedom Writers, the other day where troubled high school students were reading it in English class and were so inspired, they invited the woman who hid Anne to speak at their school. It was based on a true story. She really visited them and spoke about how she wasn’t a hero, but just an ordinary woman who did what she thought was right, and how we all have the capacity to do that, and therefore be “a small light in a dark room”. The power of doing right.
