I saw a post related to Anne Frank today; it really got me thinking about her. About how much of an icon she is. How so many people look up to her for her strength and insight. Anne Frank is truly an inspiration and deserves her spot in the history books.
But you know who we never hear about? Margot.
In case you didn’t know, Margot was Anne’s older sister. Now, Anne was known for her very restless, outspoken spirit. Margo was the opposite, she was quiet, behaved, she always did what she was told. Anne always writes about how she resented her because she was always seen as so perfect. And I don’t know, from what I’ve read about her, I really love her as a person. I feel so bad for her though. Margot was the one who followed the rules, but in the end, she was the one cast in the shadows. Remember that she went through the exact things as Anne, remember that Margo was just as strong. The only difference is that Margo didn’t have a diary, which is a shame because I’m sure her insight is just amazing.
Here’s a shout out to Margot Frank, because she was freaking awesome too.
