The Man who planted Trees and What is a good life?
The Man Who Planted Trees
When first reading this story, I found it interesting to say the least. It took me by surprise that something with so much depth and feeling was given to a bunch of 7th graders who didn't really care about a man who planted a bunch of trees. But I guess I underestimated myself and the class, cause some people really took this story to heart.
I think I had two problems with this book.
1. Since I haven't took French for a year now, I didn't know how to pronounce most of the names of the places and the name Elzeard Bouffier.
2. Way too short.
But apart from that I thought the story was really good and kind of funny in some ways.
Ok, now time for the question What is a good life? Well after lots of thought while watching episoides of Scrubs I came up with this conclusion.
To have a good life, you must change someone else's. You have to change their point of view, or even change the worlds point of view. Like a doctor, might not think so but they have had a good life because the have saved many lives and changed many peoples' lives in the process.
So thats what I think....
