I think that Jessica is doing it for Rosa's sake because she wants to do something for Rosa because Rosa has helped Jessica a lot with feelings and not giving up hope that she could never run again. So Jessica knows that Rosa has always wanted to know what it felt like to run. So Jessica wanted to make Rosa happy and push her in the wheelchair.
I think it is a little bit of both. Jessica didn't help plan the party so she couldn't control who was invited, but she still felt guilty, and she wanted to make it up to Rosa. She also did it for Rosa. She reconized how much Rosa wanted to run and she is trying to make that dream come true.
well i believe that Jessica's dessition wasn't at all about the fact that she felt guilty. Jessica remembered how much Roa did for her even before she even knew who Jessica really was, so based on that i believe that she thought for once i'm going to TRY to make Rosa feel normal and.....well SPECIAL. do to Rosa's disability she can't run she can't even walk which really showed Jessica she is one of the few lucky one's and sadly Rosa isn't and Jessica is only "worrying on the things you can change, not the ones you can't" as said in drums girls and dangerous pie. this is the closest way that Jessica can think of to be able to show Rosa what it feels like to run, what it feels like to have the wind go through your hair, and that really makes Rosa really happy which is what Jessica is among for.
I thonk it is more for Rosa because Jessica said that she wanted Rosa tp experience being in a race.
I think that Jessica is running with Rosa becuase she understands how Rosa wants to cross the finsih line an she may have never gotten a chance to if it wasnt for Jessica. She also felt guilty for not including Rosa in man of her things but also she understands how she cant fix the past but she can focus on the future.
I think it is for both because she wants to help Rosa, but she also wants to get good practice and get used to her prosthetic running leg.
I think Jessica's new running dream of pushing Rosa is more for both in a way. It is for Rosa because she is always thinking and talking about racing, running, and her ideas of the finish line. It is also for Jessica because she has an awful feeling about her not able to run and not going to her surprise party. I think this a positive for both of the girls.
I think Jessica's dream of running with Rosa is more for Rosa than anything. This is because, well, Rosa always talks about how much she wants to get across the finish line which I believe is because she thinks it will maybe inspire her and be her beginning line as well because it will give Rosa hope. Jessica oviously gets it because she is inspired by Rosa and sees her not her condition. She wants other people too as well. She wants to let Rosa feel the wind through her hair and the rush of running in her own way. Rosa is like Samantha again because she truly is Jessica's knight in shining armor who saves her from that deep despair she had fallen into. Jessica knows that and is upset because of how Rosa is treated liked she doesn't belong and is the werdio even though her personality is warm, geniusy, and kind. LIke how she wasn't invited to Jessica's surprise party, when in Jessica's mind she was probably right up there with Fiona. I think that Jessica is doing this in thanks and to show how important Rosa is to her, and just in general. So I truly believe Jessica isn't doing this act of kindness for herself to benefit from. I even am proud of Jessica for taking action and trying to help Rosa instead of just thinking it. Like Gavin said before, Sadly there is a deep pit between thoughts and action, or something like that. Somehow Jessica has crossed that abyss just like Rosa did when she first talked to Jessica.
I think it is more for Rosa. this is because Jessica gets to have a 2nd chance at running, but Rosa will never be able to run. I think Jessica thinks that because her dream has been accomplished, now she can accomplish some one else's dream.
In my opinion, I would say that Jessica's new running dream is definitely because she feels guilty. If I were in Jessica's shoes I would feel the same way; not knowing someone until I got ''stuck'' sitting with them in the back of the class. I also think that this will help both of the girls in a way. Rosa will have her time to shine and Jessica will feel that she is a great friend and is doing something great for Rosa and herself.
I think jessica running with the wheelchair is more for rosas benefit because if it was for rosa she would do something much less significant like just stopping by and say hello. But jessica has a different prospective she wants rosa to feel what its like to run wether it takes hard traoning
I think Jessica is pushing Rosa in the 10 mile race for Rosa. She is running the race to help Rosa experience crossing the finish line. Rosa has mentioned this many times to Jessica. Jessica wants Rosa to feel good about herself. It is possible that Jessica is helping her in the race because she did not invite Rosa to her prosthetic leg celebration. However I feel that Jessica is doing this for good reasons.
I think that Jessica's new running dream of pushing Rosa in the race is for both of them. Jessica feels bad that Rosa is recognized by her condition not her as a person. Rosa wants to feel what it is like to run. Jessica can relieve her guilt and Rosa can get the benefit of feeling what running is like. That is what I think Jessica's new running dream is about
I think that pushing Rosa in the race us more for Rosa because Jessica mentions how much she wants to get Rosa over the finish line since Rosa has helped Jessica get through so many things. Also, Jessica knows that she will be able to run again but in Rosa's future that will never be able to happen. For Jessica at least she will be able to do most things but on the other hand Rosa will never be able to run or do most things so it is super sweet of Jessica to wanna help her get over a finish line even if it requires a lot of work and training....
Well for Rosa she really didn't care about what Jessiaca was thinking she just wanted to do it. Jessiaca on the other hand was having second thoughts. She was wondering how she would be able to do it in the ten mile of she couldn't even do the one short block. It's just like that article we read a little wile back with that boy and his brother. Now of course it was a heck lot shorter the idea is what relates to what's happening right now. So even thou she just started it its gonna be a lot of work.
I think that it is more for Rosa, beacuse Rosa despiratley wants to cross that finish line, and Jessica wants to help Rosa with that.
I don't have a strong enough op[inion on the topic to decide who it is more appointed to with the idea. But I know it will impact both of the girls imensley and is a big step forward for both of them.
I think that it is a little bit of both because Jessica was feeling bad because Rosa did not get invited to her party for her running leg. She felt bad that before Jessica got a injure she in not even talk to her. She thought about her like everyone eles "The girl in the wheel chair". But she also thought about how all of the question that Rosa asked her about running and about the finsh line. So she thought about the second chance she was given and she want to give Rosa this chance. That is why I think Rosa is going to run with Rosa to the finsh line.
