I had mixed feelings to the story about your college freind and how her brother got leukemia at the age of 3. It was inspiring to me when she went through the worst expirence in the world for her sick brother. It was sad when she found out that he died even though she want through that pain. It was also inspiring because she still said even though the treatment did not work she would still go through all that pain 1,000 times more for one second with her brother.
The story that you shared with us inspired me because very few older siblings would go through that much pain for their younger sibling, who they might not even get along with a lot.
I was inspired and sad at the same time. I was sad because her little brother had leukemia and when she underwent the treatment and it still didn't work and he died at such a young age. And he never got to actualy live his life. I was inspired because at 12 years old she did the prosedure and it must have been so painful with a needle that big I mean super painful. If my brother had leukemia I don't think I would be able to go through that procedure to get the needle even though I would cry and cry because he was close to dying. But she did it and she was probably realy sad because it didn't work and her brother died. So when I herd you say that she underwent the procedure I was amazed.
The story that you shared with us this morning made me feel a mix of sad and inspired. I feel inspired because if that was my brother I would do the same thing for him. It makes me feel sad because I couldnt imagine going through that type of pain of losing one of my brothers. Also, I feel inspired because at such a young age she volunteered to give part of her bone and it didnt work. But, she wouldnt want to change a thing about what she did. That right there is just amazing!
The story you told us this afternoon definatly made me feel inspired and sad. Afterwards there was a lump in my throat. It made me feel so inspired because it made me see how though things like that are happening everyday and she stayed so strong and went through all of that pain for her little three year old brother. After i heard he passed away and the sister said that she wouldnt change doing that surgery, I was inspired because she was so selfless. She also said she would do it 100 times over to just give him a chance of surviaul. That made me feel so though in a way. I almost thought that if she can do what she did and go through that pain I can do that too. I also liked the short story about the starfish. I always feel like that with everything. It is also true that you cant save everything, but you can always try and it will make a difference even if its for one person.
The story you said about your college friend made me both sad and inspired. I was sad because having to think aboutsomeone my age going through the most painful expirence of having a baby sibling have leukemia, it was heartbreaking. I was also inspired how she had the strength to sit there, while doctor's stuck an huge needle down her spine, trigger all her nerves, in pain, to give her brother more time on earth. I think at the time, though, she was in much more pain watching her brother go through cancer,than any procedure could ever her, and she knew it. Thats why I think she did it, and even though she later held her baby brothers while he died, and she didn't regret it later, knowing that every second counts and she was the one who probably gave him more time, even if it was only a day, an hour, or even a second.
Rachel I thought that that responce was a really good response. I f i never heard the story that Mr. Bunel told us I would have a relly good clue of what was going on
The story made me a mix of both sad and inspired. It is incredibly brave how that girl did that for her little brother. I can't belive that even if she could go back in time and not get the giant shot, she wanted to get the shot even if it would help her brother just the tiniest bit. It is very sad because a year later, she was holding her brother's hand, while he was dying from his suffering of leukemia. I am so inspired from her about the amazing thing she did for her brother. Even just thinking about getting that giant, long and very sharp needle right into me gives me the chills. That story makes me so sad, but at the same time, amazingly inspired.
I thought the story was touching inspiring and sad all at the same time. It was sad because unfortunatley her brother didnt make it even after the bone marrow transplant. it was touching/inspirational because even though it ended in tragedy she wouldn't have changed a thing because it could've given him a little bit more time.
Yes the story you told the class was very sad but it wasnt just sad it was also amazing because she said she wold do that spinal cord prosedure 100 times again just to let his brother even have one chance to live it was also sad because her brother died bacicly while the girl was watching this is the emoshions that were going through me.
It was a mixture of both it chills my bones just to think of doing that but in that reason it inspires me. It inspires me to think a little bit less selflessly and think of it as if I was the other person and they were me. It was also a little sad to me because she gave that huge risk and her little brother still passed away. In total it inspires me more than almost anyhting because to step for a bully or a brother inspires me.
Well........... when you told us the story about your friend stories about people who are hurt or don't feel good make my eyes water but I would say that I was not sad about it. I just think that if that was me and that was my little brother would I do that for them. I think that I would because we fight and stuff but I care so much about them that I would do anything to protect them in any way I can. So I think that the story oyu told us inspired me, haddlebury
that story that you shared with us got me inpressed and mixed emotions. that girl cared so much about her brother that she would go throught the most painful thing that she experianced a billion time just so that she could spend at leas one more seccond with her brother. i found that so nice and brave for her to do that for her brother. sometimes peolpe think that there sibling dont like you but in that time of need they will do what ever to just have you there by your sided
the story you told really broke my heart. to hear what she went thro just to find out it didnt work its just sad. To hear that she would do that amillion more time just means true love. i would do the same for some one i love. thats what i think of the story
I thought it was more inspiring than sad. I mean, for a 12 year old to go through that pain . . . is just so heroic. All that for that one person she loved so much. And knowing that she would do it in a heartbeat any where anytime. Just to make her little brother live a second longer . . . is trying incredible.
This morning we talked about leukemia. We learned that Mr. Bunel's friend from college had a little who died of leukemia. My feelings after hearing the story were both sad and inspired. It was a sad conflict that her younger brother died at 3 years. I was inspired because she did a bone narrow transplant to try and save her little brother. the transplant ended up not working. It's amazing and inspiring how Mr. Bunel's friend at 12 years old did the bone narrow one of the most painful surgeries in the world and she did it because she loved her little brother.
P.S. Mr. Bunel I forgot what her name was
I believe for me it was a mix of both because in the end the brother did not survive. If you go throughout one of the painful medical and not have it work is devastating. It also gives me inspiration do try to make a difference in someones else's life is one of the best feelings on Earth. If I had the opportunity to make someone live instead of die would be amazing. I think that woman should feel amazing because of what she had done.
