On January 12, 2015, my 9th grade English 1 honors teacher Mr. Reese has given myself and my fellow class the opportunity to visit Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach, Florida. As we got there we saw this huge green hand reaching for the sky, symbolizing for me Hope. Then we were introduce to an little elderly man who was our "tour guide" . Out of the whole field trip, what had effectived me the most was the first Sculpture with a women and her two children, the mother is holding her children tightly and behind her there is a quote that says "...In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart..." By Anna Frank . Its amazing even though there is this huge massacre happening but still this little 12 year old girl hiding for her life still sees light at the end of the tunnel. At the end of the tour you see the final sculpture with the same mother and two children now dead on the floor and written behind them Anna Frank words hauntingly behind “Ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us only to meet the horrible truths and be shattered.” Everyone truly need come and witness this amazing place for themselves.
