Anne taught me to not take anything for granted and to be thankful for what I have.

Anne Frank’s story and The Anne Frank Center USA, in its legacy to educate and uplift, are continuous reminders of Human Rights and Social Justice violations; not only from the past, but of those continuously happening around the world today….and how one person can change millions.

I admire Anne's positive outlook on life. If she can be so upbeat in the face of so much evil, then I know I can overcome difficulties as well.

Anne Frank. She was just a girl but she had so much to say. She shared her dreams with us, and she shared her problems with us. She used her gift of writing to convert her powerful voice into words for us. I wish she was here with us because it would be so interesting for her to share her story in words. Her diary was a powerful tool to teach people what it was like.

Anne Frank was positive until the very end and no matter what always had such a beautiful and positive outlook on life.She always wanted to be a writer and if only she could know how inspiring her diary is to millions of people, it's amazing how even in these circumstances that she was in, she still found beauty in the world, and could find beauty in her tree and that's truly amazing.

I believe that Anne is an inspiration to all with how she still finds happiness while in hiding and in not-so-good situations. Anne can teach people that you can make anything happy and you don't always have to be sad. You can stay strong even when something is knocking you down or keeping you restricted from joy.

I think it's amazing how Anne coped with everything revolving around her and stayed positive as could be. I look up to Anne and hope that no one has to go through the pain she went through but rather the optimist she was and may still be, if present today.

Anne was a beautiful person. We should all honor her and the fact that she was optimistic the whole way through, until her last diary entree. Even in the worst of times, she always believed that this happened for reason- and that at the end everything will be okay. We should all take a moment to honor Anne Frank.

Anne Frank has given us such a clear look to what was happening. I think she is so brave to survive going through the hiding, I wish nobody has to ever go through anything like that again! I'm glad she at least had some moments in the Annex that were happy. RIP

Anne Frank was an inspiration to many. Her courage to this day shines like a beacon in the night helping young people find solace in their own times of need.
