I think that it is so important to Winnie that she did something important because miles told her that he was going to do something important so, she felt like she was also accomplishing that important thing in her life. She also probably felt like this was the most important thing that will represent her life.
Winnie needs to "do something useful" because she needs to do it for the world. If Mae goes to the gallows, the whole world will just be, like rocks on the side of a road. Everyone will envy the running water as it flows in an elagent stream. Winnie cannot let Mae go to the gallows or else the whole world will be in danger.
I think it is important to Winnie to do something useful because Tuck said that it is of no use to take up space in this world if your not going to do something useful. Winne thinks it's important because for the first time in her life, Winnie can do something useful.
She thinks its so important to do something useful because she knows how much the Tucks have done for her, and she wanted to repay the favor. It would be nice or really great to help Mae get out of jail and take her place. She would feel guilty if she didn't help Mae great out of jail.
Because she wanted to do something not just sit there and not help mae.If she dident be useful the town would be immortal she would be immortal and get the tucks in jail.
I think it is important to Winnie to make a difference in the world because Miles said to her that if you are lucky enough to be in this world then make something of your life don't just take up space. So she may want to do something because its almost like she is doing it for the tucks since they can't. Maybe it is also important to her that she does it is because it is to help her friends in a bad situation.
I think that it's important to Winnie to do something useful because she has grown to have a loving connection and bond with all of the Tuck's,and even though they did kidnap her they taught her new things,told her new stories, and showed her how to stand up for herself in ways that may harm but are to protect.Also, as Tuck had told her once if you plan on staying in this world then you might as well do something useful, I think those words of wisdom meant that you shouldn't sit around and wait for something to come to you,you need to get out there and do something that might change the world or the people in it.And helping Mae fits under those to things,it might be a risky ordeal,but Winnie herself has:confidence,courage,&optimisim.Winnie also doesn't want the constable,town or outsiders getting in on the secret about the spring, when they go to hang Mae and she doesn't die.If people know about the spring then the big wheel will stop turning and there will be now dying or anything special that happens to the Earth or the wood when everyone is gone, everyone will still be here.
Um...... She wants to have a life and not live in a lie. Also she doesn't want people to judge her and be mean to her. She also wants to feel how it is to die and go through a real life not a fake.
Mr. B when can i come in and see you?????
#1. Your blog posts are better than last year!
#2. Let me know what days are good for you and you can come in and shoot some hoops with me.
#3. You are dead on with your Lebron prediction.
I think it is important because I don't think she thinks that she has expressed herself in life as miles point is you can't take up space on this world and not do anything useful she probably thinks wow if I do this I can make a difference in this world
I think it is so important to her because after miles told her that you should do something useful she finAly really thought about that. After she thought about it she realized that it is true if you get the gift to live you should make a difference it doesn't have to be big but just make one, don't just take up space in the world. Once Winnie thought and thought about what she was going to do for Mae she realized that what she is doing will make a difference in the world and that is what she had to do.
I honestly don't have any idea on why it is important for whinnie to do something useful. If I had to guess I probobly say that it's important because she feels like she owes something to the tucks. I would say this because Mae is in the gallows and wants to make it up to her.
It is important for Winnie to do something useful becasue it's her fault mae went to the gallows. This is becasue if winnie hadnt wonder off into the woods, she wouldnt of found out about the spring. Also the man in the yelllow suit wouldnt of overheard about the spring. This is why winnie wants to do something useful. In the book there was a quote that says "if you are going to have life, you should do something useful with it." For winnie, is one of the useful things.
I think that winne wants to do so because like they said in the book they wouldent be in that posisoin if it wornt for her. she has to or at least in her appion. Its almost like a gift for being so nice to her and careing for her sooo much. she knows that she might get in troulbe but she is willing to do it for them. one thing im curise about is way jesse didnt hold her back i mean doesnt he like her?
Well maybe she was listening to Tuck when he said that if you have the gift of life dont just take up space do something useful. Or maybe she felt like she was just taking up space and felt the need to do something about it. She has been practicaly locked up in her house not leaving the fence and really has not had the chance to do anything important so now is her chance.
i totes agree! you made some great points!
Well...... I think that Winnie wants to do something important with her life because Tuck told her this, "If you are blessed with a life in this world you better do some thing important with it" and she wants to listen to Tuck because she trusts Tuck. Winnie also wants to help the Tucks because they did so much for her and now they need help so Winnie wants to repay them for all they did for her. That is why I find that it so important to Winnie for her to do something important.
I think it is so important Winnie does something useful because everyone should do something useful, not just her. I think this is because if people are given the abilty to live and epierence life, we can't just take up space. We must do something to help someone or just make any difference in the world. Some people think this is hard. I think, however, how hard is it to donate a couple of dollars somewhere, to help your neighbors and friends when they're in trouble?
I think it is important for winnie to do something useful because everyone should try to be or do something usefull and also the tucks have done many good things for her and she can do somthing usefull to repay them
I think Winnie wants to do something "useful" because she wants to help the Tucks. She wants to help them keep the secret because she knows what will happen and thinks it is horrible. They where the people who showed her what life is, a cycle where you cant choose parts you like and skip over the rest. Can't choose not to die. You have to have a good life while it lasts. She thinks for making her realize that she has become their freinds and she owes them one.
I think it's so important for Winnie to help the tucks because they cared for her. They also cared for her so much that they even killed the man in the yellow suit from kidnapping her. Now I think that she should help them by rescuing Mae. I think that would be important to the Tuck's because becasue all there lives they've been doing there jobs all on there own. Now the have someone to help them.
I think that it is important that Winnie understands what Miles means because when he says that "you can't take up space in thisd world, and not do anything useful' I think that Winnie should understand what he means when he says this because not everyone can be famous or take up space in this world without doing something useful or expressing who you really are. She should understand that in the world the only way you'll take up space is to be extroardinary and special in your own way.
