Dear Elie Wiesel,
Your book Night has inspired me to be kind to everyone. I realized how terrible the Holocaust was, and I was deeply saddened about the Nazi's killing all the Jews. A couple of days after I read your book I went to a high school football game. There I saw a few kids making fun of another kid. I jumped right in and told them to leave him alone, and they all left. Because of your book I was inspired to stick up for people being mocked and to stand up to bullying, not just to be a bystander.
I learned that no matter how hard you're struggling never to give up. Like when the boy's dad was getting beaten and died, the boy didn't just sit around crying, he worked hard and was rewarded with freedom. I also learned that there's always hope. In the book when everyone thought all hope was lost, the U.S bombed the camp, just like the Nazi's were the bully's and the U.S were the only ones standing up to them. Now I will stand up to people being mean to others, because everyone should be treated equally.
I think everyone should be treated with kindness. No matter what a person's beliefs, race, or if they're rich or poor, I know I need to treat everyone with the same amount of kindness. The way I follow this is by obeying the Ten Commandments and keeping God very close in my heart. My belief in God and the Ten Commandments help me by making me stop to think, "Is this going to get me into trouble? Will this hurt someone?" Sometimes I find it hard to be kind to everyone, like when I'm playing a game and it gets serious, I find it very hard to be kind to my opponents, but I do stay kind and if I have to I take a break from the game for a minute.
This book has taught me all sorts of things, but the main thing is to be kind. I want everyone who reads this to be a little nicer to everyone they know, because you never know when a person will not be there for you anymore. Think if everyone in the world was kind, there wouldn't be any wars. No one would do bad things to get themselves in jail. The world would be the safest place you could imagine.
