Good quotes. I especially like,
"Paper has more patience than people."

I'm sure many writers would agree.

Flannista

Paper certainly had more patience than my mother.

Perhaps the best documentary about Anne Frank; and actually, one of the best documentaries I've ever seen:

"In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart."

The anti-Semitic comments which followed the video were stunning and cruel, but really put this day in perspective. Thanks for shining a light on both the bright and dark sides of this commemoration.

PEACEsista -- I never bothered to look at the comments below the video I posted at 7:29 a.m. , but just did. They truly are stunning and deeply disturbing.
