Each year, my students read the dramatization of The Diary of Anne Frank. In her diary, she writes, “In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”
Over and over we see the mistreatment of animals and people.
But, like Anne Frank, I still believe that people are really good at heart.
When I was in shock and hurt, friends rallied. They sat by me. They let me cry. They sent cards. They brought flowers. They sent soldiers. They fed me. They loved me.
There are narcissists and people who move from places of fear, but, for the most part, “people are really good at heart.” For that, I am grateful.
