Anne Frank drew solace and inspiration from looking out the attic window at the chestnut tree growing behind the Secret Annex. Share your voice alongside Anne’s by leaving a leaf here on the Sapling Project Virtual Tree.

This story has made me think about human nature, and how peaceful and destructive it can be. I hope this diary will show people a more peaceful way. :)

I have been learning about Anne Frank's story in my English class. We read the play version of her story, and I have read her diary. I have really grown to love and appreciate her story, and to love her as a person. Her life was cut way too short, and I am really, really glad that her wish of her being able to live her life, even after her death, came true.

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” The way Anne Frank perceives the world has inspired me to do the same. Her positive thinking has allowed me to always seen the finer things in life. To accept others through thick and thin. To not judge others from their actions, but from what lays inside their heart. Anne Franks view on the world has inspired me to see the brighter side of life and to appreciate the fortunate things I have. I will carry this motto throughout my entire life.

The quote, ”I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness; I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too. I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better, that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquillity will return once more.” makes me want to encourage others. This quote shows that no matter the situation, there is always a good and better will come.
