I am agnostic; I am not positive if there is a greater power although I would like to believe so. After reading Night it has my eyes and made me realize that my name, race, gender, religion, and age do not matter. It is what is on the inside that truly means something and that can make a difference someday. The most profound point that stood out was the horrific events that were taking place to one just because of a different religion. While reading Night I would become outraged that one can torture another man so horribly and nothing could be done about it. It made me disgusted that there were and still are horrible people in the world that do not have morals and values to be a good and valuable citizen. The overall impression of this story was based on honesty; while reading Night one receives the inside information on the horror that took place in the concentration camps. .
The importance of reading Night was to get a better understanding on what happened in the concentration camps- and who would know it better than one who was there and lived through it? The students around the world reading Night will someday be the adults managing it, so it is an eye-opener we, the students of today, need to make sure nothing like this ever happens again. "The opposite of love is no hate; it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness; it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy; it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death; it's indifference." This quote proves that everyone is the same; we are all human, so it does not matter what we are like or what we believe in we are all equal. We, the students, can stand up and change the world for better and Night would be the inspiration for that. It is important to keep the story Night as part of the curriculum so the children of tomorrow will understand such injustice. The importance of Night is also to forgive and accept that these shameful events took place, and to learn from it and to create a better world for our children and grandchildren.
