I had the privilege of reading your book the Cage in the seventh grade; that was over 22 years ago. Your story as well as others like it have left a indelible marks on my heart. That same little 12 year old girl wrote a letter to you...and much to my surprise you wrote back! You closed the letter with, "As long as there's life there is hope." I must have read that letter 50 times! Your simple act of kindness has stayed with me. No words will ever be enough to express my gratitude...so I will simply say, I will always remember. May G_D continue to bless and keep you.

Dear Mrs. Sender, my English class just finished reading The Cage. My English class is a great class, and I think it would be great if you could visit my class, in Gilbert High School.We would be happy to have you visit us. Oh and I have some questions that I was wondering I could ask about your book.

I will read that poem and I will make sure that I teach them as much as I can about you and what you have been through. I have said many times to them as long as there is life there is hope. Ever since I read it in the Cage it is all I can think about when something happens and makes me depressed. We haven't even met and I fell that you have taught me so much. Thank you

Read the poem Why to your class and speak about it.
Remind the students AS LONG AS THERE IS LIFE THERE IS HOPE
We must remember. We must learn We must teach.
With best wishes.

My teacher Mrs. Flayton, the on you visited a while ago, asked me to give a little presentation to my class about your book the Cage. I'm really looking forward to it. Is there anything important you want me to say? Do you have anything in mind that you think I should mention?

Dear Ruth. I understand not being able to travel this far, it is quite a long trip. I plan on reading the rest of your books, To Life, Remember Your Name, and The Holocaust Lady. I think I will have to go a public library because I don't know if my school library will have some of your books, but I will do whatever it takes to get a hold of them. I will be sure to tell Mrs. Flayton you say hi, she will be excited.
I'm sorry if this is annoying, but, do you think it could be possible to have a video chat with you since it is too far of a travel? I just think it would be really amazing if my class could talk to you and meet a real survivor.
Best of wishes,

Hello Ruth/Riva. My name is Madelynn. I am in 8th grade at Copper Ridge Middle School and I just read Cage. I borrowed it from a teacher of mine, you met her back in 93'. Her name is Sandy Flayton. Do you remember her? She used to be a teacher in New York but now she is here in Arizona. We talked today and we would absolutely LOVE it if you could come here to Scottsdale and talk to our class about your experiences during the Holocaust. We just entered our Holocaust unit this week and would really appreciate it if you could come to visit us. Please if possible can you get back to me on this. My email address is email@example.com. Please Ruth? We really want this. Mrs. Flayton and I even were talking about going to pick you up from the airport personally. You have no idea how much we want to meet you and would appreciate it if you could come to Arizona to visit us. Please?
