social and spiritual, therefore here comes the deluge from my mind and soul, take cover. I won’t go on ad nauseum or do a diatribe that will blot out precious moments from your day dear scribes, I’m really just going to make a request based on events that have been unfolding in the middle east. Disturbing events. Events that require close attention. It matters not to me your religions bent, or your cultural affiliation, what matters is that your mind is open. Here is my request:
This sweet girl has an important day approaching. It would be her 81st on birthday on June 12, had she been permitted to live. Instead, she died in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at the age of fifteen.
While in hiding from the monsters who eventually killed her, she wrote in this diary, a birthday gift from her family which actually became a gift from Anne to you and I:
Which was published, printed and looks like this sometimes:
Request: If you’ve read it, please reread it over the summer and if you’ve not read it, please make this a gift you give to yourself and let Anne speak to you. I was raised a catholic (emphasis on the intentional small c) but now I’m a humanist, my god is the collective unit known as you and I and everyone else on this planet and the book above is my bible. Read it and you will see why. Happy weekend scribes, keep speaking your truth freely and openly. 🙂
Happy Birthday Anne, thank you for the words, always the words.
