Hey there, how’s it goin’? I was up till 1:30 am watching a movie called Freedom Writers, starring Hilary Swank and this movie is amazing. It’s about this teacher who helps these kids in a small school or something get their grades up and teaches them how to live without fear in many ways. It’s a true story and an amazing movie. Hilary Swank has done an excellent job, she always does. These kinds of movies get my whole “spirit” up and like, make me want to do something like that. I mean, how cool is it to be someone who’s made some sort of change to this world, right? I mean, it could be in any way, doesn’t have to be big or small. It’s just something I wish to do when I’m older. To help people in some way, even if it’s just a little. I know you might be thinking how stupid or ‘wannabeish’ this sounds, but it’s something we should all do. When I am old enough to get a good full time job and have enough, I want to help kids study somehow. We have so many things in our lives that we start taking them for granted. I bet many of, MOST of you hate school, or find it boring and don’t always complain how you have to. There are so many kids out there who kill to have what you have. I use to be the kid who said “I don’t want to go to school tomorrow” I so regret saying that now. Because at point in my life, I was homeschooled and I missed school so much. I would do anything to turn back time and go back to school. Even now, if I get a chance, I will go to college. So, I think we should appreciate what we have and respect it. Don’t throw away your old story books or any kind of book that can help someone educate. Keep them, give them to someone who really needs it. I once found a great English book fallen on the footpath, near the big trash can near my house once, and believe me, that book taught me so much. I’ve read many books, and done many English courses so I know a little bit about how good a book is. That book was fantastic; I use to read it over and over again just because I found it so fun. I was in 3rd grade, I think and the book was for 5th graders. So, all I’m saying is, that please don’t complain about how you don’t anything or have to deal with so much in life. Everyone somehow has to deal with a lot of things; you’re not the only one. And don’t throw away books or stuff. Give them to someone who really needs it. It can be anyone, or give to some organization that helps little kids educate or something. Anything. Because if we don’t do anything, nothing is going to happen, nothing is going to change. It’s as simple as that. I don’t know if this “inspires” you to do something or not, but I wanted to speak and I was in the mood to write so I did it. Oh and Freedom writers, you all should watch, it’s a spectacular movie, inspirational story too. And it’s a true story, that’s like even cooler.
P.S I recommend this movie to everyone out there. You wont be disappointed, watch it!
