Anne Frank's diary is a must read for every teen-age girl. So I did read it when I was in high school. But I was so obsessed with Peter that I failed to notice that Anne had a tree, a chestnut, where she pondered about her life, her being and her future. The tree is old now and dying. But before that inevitable happens, they cut some twigs and replanted them in an institution where Anne's memory is being rekindled. Extraordinary people truly never dies.
