In an effort to get everyone writing more - yes, even the adults out there wanting a little push - prompt #1 of the summer. I WANT to share your writing ideas - kids and parents alike. It can totally be anonymous - just let me know what you write and if I may share it (with or without a credit to you, the author).
Below is a quote from Anne Frank....Anne Frank!! Think about her situation in life...her age, her circumstance, her experience. And yet this is where she landed - people are good. Wow. (her birthday was yesterday - June 12th)
So much could be written from these two sentences.
"It's a wonder I haven't abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart."
What do you think made AF adopt such a positive outlook when she could have easily (and understandably) had a pessimistic and angry view of humanity?
What, in your life experience, makes you lose faith in the fundamental goodness of men? Why? How do you move forward in the world?
Is there a "good" element in everyone, regardless of their actions or beliefs? How do we reconcile evil acts or philosophies with this belief? What would be a good example of this in the modern world?
Happy writing! xo
