Said It: Anne Frank, On the Power of Writing

Anne-Frank

“I can shake off everything as I write;

my sorrows disappear,

my courage is reborn.”

Last night Joe and I and our friend Kaci went to a wonderful reading series called Tell It Slant, which was held at the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education. The reading was in collaboration with the museum’s exhibit ‘Anne Frank: A History For Today’. I was particularly inspired by this quote from Anne Frank. I don’t think I read her diary when I was young, but have put it at the top of my reading list for this year.

If you are in Portland and interested in this Anne Frank exhibit, it’s on until April 14, 2015.
