  • Miep Gies Is A Hero Essay

    I would have been able to do what she did, because she risked her safety in such hard times for quite a bit of people, and you wouldn't know if they ever cared about you or if they were just using you until you were useless. Alternatively, I believe that Miep Gies has left a huge mark in history and I think that many people can agree with me. I say this because she adds on to the moral courage list, with all of the others who did what they could, and because of that, they went down in history. Miep is an inspiration to many because about 11million people were killed and anyone who even dared to help deport the Jews or help them in any way would most likely be killed. Meanwhile, while all of this was going on, she continued to work for Opekta and contributed to keeping the business going. On weekdays Miep Gies sometimes went into the secret annexe several times a day. She is also an inspiration just because of how much courage that she had. More importantly, I think that being able to make a difference in someone’s life and taking advantage of that opportunity is what makes a hero. We all have the potential to be heroes, and clearly Miep Gies is a hero, she saved the Frank family and helped them through all of their hard times. I feel that I have had a few times where I showed courage, but one specific time came to mind. One event in which I showed moral courage was when I was baptized in front of a couple hundred people in a small pool with my cousin. This is a moral…

  • Reflection On The Writing Squib

    The piece of writing used for the writing squib was from a journal entry on July 18th 2016. This time for me marks a museum entrance that left me forever moved by the story of Anne Frank and the secret annex. The writing on this day was to take the place of the camera I would have used and wanted to document but was not permitted to do so. The next best thing was pen and paper so I entered with the look of seeking answers to questions never even imagined. I started off the day meeting my…
