The current generation and the past generation have had its faults, its own troubles, and events, just like the Holocaust and the recent Florida school shooting. Yet, there is always good in the world, no matter the evil. During challenging times, people will come together to help one another, and try to make a difference in the world.

Mr. Frank answers their objections to this, that “Please. I’ve thought this out for weeks. It’s the best arrangement. The only arrangement,” (Goodrich, PDF 707). Instead of making the Van Daans sleep in the main room, the Franks sacrifice their own living space for the other family.

She had paid attention to everyone and their needs. “There’s a lot more, songs and presents.” (Goodrich, 480). Many members of the group hiding in the annex believed that Anne was aggravating and annoying, that she were someone who just didn’t pay attention to others. Yet, Anne had paid attention to everyone. She tried to give everyone a normal holiday, something to make their lives feel normal again given the current circumstances. Anne even thought that she, herself, was annoying and rude, but her sweet side still showed through because she cared about these people in her life.
