The precept I picked for school is “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” -Mahatma Gandhi. The reason why I choose this quote is because it means something to me. What it means to me that if you want something done you should do it yourself. You shouldn't wait for someone else to fix your problems or do something for you because you are to lazy to try. If you want to change something go out and try and do it yourself. YOU! It only takes one person to make a difference in the world and it can start with anyone.
Something that I will take with me from reading Wonder is the people can’t control what they look and that gives absolutely no reason to judge anybody before you even know them. My favorite thing about this book is that there are so many things that I can relate to.
Something that really hit close to home is when Auggies dog Daisy passed away. This really made me upset because it was like what happened with my cat. As Ms. Findlay was reading it I could tell that she was upset as well by the way she was reading the book so I tried not to pay much attention to what she was saying. Some kids were looking around the classroom to see if anybody was crying.
I really could relate to what happened to Daisy and I know how much Auggie and his whole entire family felt when daisy passed. It just reminds you to cherish the moments you have with everybody that you love.
