Knowledge is a powerful tool to have at your disposal. If you think about it where would this nation be today without the knowledge of the past. The knowledge that I have gained through life is what holds me steady. Also the fact that my loved ones are there when I need them, and I to them. In a way knowledge is a defense mechanism. We learn from our mistakes in life, that is what makes stronger, more knowledgeable, and wiser. Treasure these as you treasure your loved ones, because you never know when you might need them the most.

    Austin, this is so true! Most of us do learn from our mistakes and that is exactly what makes us stronger and better people. We also have the ability to at least try and take the bad out of other people too, and that is where this class has helped all of us by letting our voices be heard. I believe that when we are completely done with this class, we can honestly say “it’s been well worth it.” I am proud to be everyones friend, including yours.

    Very true, if we didn’t learn from our mistakes we would be doomed to relive them over and over.

    So so true the only thing that is great about making mistakes is to learn form them or to share them and hope that others learn without having to make the mistake themselves

    I agree, I take alot in from every desicion I make. I can even say that I dont regret anything I’ve done because I have learned from it in some way. I’m lucky because most of my loved ones are still here and I do make sure that I dont take them for granted!

    Well put Austin! I have enjoyed listening to you speak throughout the course of this class. You are definitely a goof ball but without you, the class probably wouldn’t be the same. I also have enjoyed getting to know more about your past and your experiences. It’s no wonder you value your knowledge. Keep up the good work.

    Those that forget the past are doomed to repeat it.

    I agree with what you are saying. You should love and cherish your family. if you do not learn from your mistakes then you will just repeat them again and again.
