HERO GUESTBOOK

Julia writes: My hero is Anne Frank. Anne Frank was an ordinary teenage girl, but she has touched the hearts of so many through her inspiring words. Living as a Jewish child during the Holocaust was hard, but Anne found a way to express her feelings in a way that no bestselling author can copy. Her diary was just a simple birthday gift, but now it is in many languages and found in almost every middle school and high school across the globe. Her brave soul and fearless mind makes Anne Frank a hero for many.
