What Anne Said

You can get inspirations everywhere and every time. Even when you write one single sentence which contains only five words, you can develop it into one good story. More than that, inspiration will live your life. At least, it burns your spirit.

One day, I browsed information related to holocaust by Nazi. I intentionally found one victim of that holocaust named Anne Frank. She was a Jew. When Nazi invaded Germany, Anne and her family moved to Netherland and lived there. At the beginning they could live normally, but not after Nazi invaded Netherland. They hid in the Annex house, a hideous place that kept three families.

While hiding in Annex house, Anne wrote a diary which became very famous now. Anne’s father published his daughter diary into a book titled The Diary of a Young Girl. The original copy of Anne’s diary was kept at Museum that dedicated for holocaust victims located at Netherland.

I was very curious to read that book. However, I am not sure if I can get Indonesian translated of that book. To feed by curiosity, I explored the website dedicated for Anne Frank and I found one inspirational quote that Anne has wrote on her diary.

“Earning happiness means doing good and working, not speculating and being lazy. Laziness may look inviting, but only work gives you true satisfaction”

I don’t know who Anne Frank is. I never met her. I knew her from internet. One thing I know, I get inspiration from her, a kind of inspiration that burns my writing spirit. I don’t want to end up as no one. Although now I am not famous, no one knows who Miss Rifka is and maybe it remains the same in the future, at least I make something that maybe someday people wants to know who I am and what I did.

This is my first post on this site. Hopefully, this writing fuels me with a lot of energy and passion to write.

“I don’t want to have lived in vain like most people. I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death” (Anne Frank)
