    fellow Gemini. Guess that is why I've always identified with her so strongly. Geminis have a unique capriciousness (some would call it "flaky"), moreso than other signs.

    Forgive me if this was posted before, but someone created this pic last year to show what Anne might have looked like at 80 had she lived.

    You know, I've seen that pic, but I really don't see Anne in it. What do you think?

    The eyes maybe, but that is about it. Of course, it is speculation.

    Yes, the eyes perhaps. The jawline just looks too strong.

    Yeah, I think they took that picture of her and "fleshed" it out, making the jawline look stronger.

    I'm gonna go visit the Secret Annex before I die, I swear.

    I agree with you that it doesn't look how I'd imagine Anne to age but the bones do shift and change shape as we get older.

    Yeah, it's all speculative at this point. But I can see how she resembles both her mom and dad, it's almost uncanny. Especially her dad.

    I have a friend who proudly shares her birthday with Anne Frank (much younger of course). The closest elementary school in our neighborhood was renamed Anne Frank Elementary School a number of years ago on June 12 of that year.

    We've only been in the Amsterdam airport once, coming home from Israel. Some day we hope to visit Holland, and definitely plan to visit the secret annex.

    It is well worth it. That was the best part of a recent European vacation I took.
