The Great Aim of Education is not Knowledge but Action - Herbert Spencer
This episode explains that dreams are worth trying to make reality, no matter how old you are. I think it’s awesome that those people made a movie. I am a huge believer that having a dream or goal in life is important, even if you don’t achieve it.
What I understood from this documentary was the fact that some people can change their life when their young or old. In the first act of the documentary was telling the story of an older lady that is in her 60's that this lady has always wanted to be a writer but never has she written a story in her life but one day she just had an urge to write a short film called bandida.
In the second act it tells a story about a 13 year old that has done criminal activities in her past life from dating guys 18+ years old to doing cocaine. The thing that she did was she cleaned up her life by not doing drugs, breaking up with older guys, and hanging out with people in her age group. So what this documentary has told me is, it doesn’t matter how old you are there is always a way to better your life, or change your life so you may benefit for the best.
This American Life today was about a senior citizen not giving up her dream to be an writer. In her sixty's she finally wrote her first peice or work. She never has written anything she could actully call her own. They then turned the her story into a short flim. It wasn't with real actors it was with real senior citizens. The writer didn't give up her dream. I don't beleive that your ever too old to make your dreams come true. It just take time and patience. Your dreams my not come true how you seen them but never give up!!
I think this episode was really good. The reason is because even if your dreams don't come true, it's worth having them. It's worth having dreams even if they don't come true because at least you can try to make them come true, and if you don't, then you might never know what it feels like to have your dreams come true. I, personally, want my dreams to come true, and, I'm going to try to make them come true. I also think that you can't grow up too fast. The reason I think that you can't grow up too fast is because you need to enjoy the little things when you're younger because as you get older, you will start to give up on your dreams. At least when you're young, you have dreams to look forward to.
