While I was rummaging through the ever-growing pile of junk that’s taking over my room, I found an old portfolio containing a bunch of essays that I wrote back in high school. I sifted through them and found one that I kind of like, so I put it on this site under “Writings.” The assignment was to write a diary entry for a character from The Crucible by Arthur Miller. The play is based on the Salem Witch Trials that took place in the late 1600s. The character (and real-life person) that I chose to write about is Rebecca Nurse, who was hanged July 19, 1692 at the age of 71.
