I found this on facebook a few minutes ago. My brain won't stop screaming. To think that in the 40's, a teenage girl wrote a touching, poignant journal that made it's way from tragedy and exile to true freedom as a warning and a remembrance of life lost. And now, in 2010, girls that very same age can go on Facebook and write this:
This makes my brain and my heart fight to see who gets to overdose on apathy first. I remember putting up my Anne Frank on YouTube short and getting some people saying it was in poor taste. Little did they know, it was a warning. Now it seems that video is more true than funny.
Congratulations, you three tiny, teenage wastelands. You now have more in common with the people Anne Frank was hiding from. If you need me, I'll be at home. Upstairs. Quietly fashioning a hiding spot for when you get older. I'd say I have 20 years or so.
