Journal 19- “Look for the beauty in life”

For our Friday prayer alternative, we watch videos that have meanings. This week, we watched a part of an interview of the world’s oldest Holocaust survivor. Alice Herz-Sommer was 110 years old when she died, last week. (The interview was made in December 2011.) I believe that her view on life is amazing, and I wish that everyone could have it. She has remained very optimistic throughout her many years and all that she has suffered through, and that is probably why she survived the Holocaust. She thinks that we should always see the good in what is happening, not the bad.

An eulogy to her great, long life.
