Does Mary Wells Have the Same ‘Right Stuff’ as Miep Gies?

Like most of us I have had terrifying moments in my life. But I never had terrifying choices to make. There were no choices. Life had to be faced. It is choosing to be brave that I don’t know. As Candy and Liz said, I know that instinctively I would give my life to save my children. But there is no choice involved in that act that is always at the ready. Miep Gies made a choice to endanger herself to protect Anne Frank and her family. I don’t know yet that inner saint or coward and I am so impressed with people who clearly make the saintly choice. I do believe that we are here to make things better and to help one another. I just pray I’ve got the right stuff.
