PLN - Song

In the song “In the Valley of the Dying Sun” by House of Heroes what matters is death. This song tells a story of a man in war who has to kill a someone who he doesn’t even know. This matters to our class because, when we read the book “All Quite on the Western Front” Paul has to deal with the same experience. He had to kill a man who jumped into a crater when he was hiding out. This matters to the world because it has yet to see the true reality and horror of war. People get killed without care countless times. This matters to the me because my uncle was in war and he was exposed to the atrocities of how inhumane humans can be. In the song “In the Valley of the Dying Sun that is what matters.

PLN "I Remember When"

In the video I Remember When what matters is a technical revolution. The kids in the video remind us of things like new high speed Internet and our cellular advancement technology. It is advertising Intel’s superiority in technology and high speed Internet. What matters to the world is when the world becomes faster, the people become faster. In other words when the Internet, phones and transportation get faster, the people of the world will be forced to become faster. Not in a sense of athleticism but in a sense of necessity. The people need to be faster in order to keep up with society. What matters to me is that it depicts out past and how our past shapes our future. When our culture keeps advancing their technology, it means that our future will have even more technological advances. In the video I Remember When it tells us about the technical revolution and its bright future ahead.

Three Idem Introduction

My Bible is a full New International Version that I try to read nightly. It is significant to me because my grandmother gave it to me when I was about eight. This leads me act differently because, when I read what Jesus did, it helps me act in a better and more holy way.

Lacrosse Stick is a six-foot Titan Classic that is silver. The head that I use is a STX Proton Power with a soft mesh and loose stringing. It is significant to me because when I step out onto that lacrosse field I need something that I can rely on, and that is it. This leads me to act differently because when I have a reliable stick in order to reach my goal of making varsity.

My Father is a 5’ 10” man with black hair. He owns a chain of hockey retail store; Players Bench. They are located all over the country in cities including; Colorado, Utah, New York, Minnesota, and multiple in Canada. He was accepted to Colorado College, with a full ride scholarship for hockey. Then he moved on and played for the Minnesota North Stars (now the Minnesota Wild). He is significant to me because I look up to him so much and I always strive to be as successful as him. He always pushes me as hard as a can possible go, in everything; sports school and music. When I don’t meet his standards he doesn’t punish me his is just disappointed and wants more out of me.

I dont Know if I can do this but...

In the YouTube video Dying Boy's Last Wish, what matters is survival and love. A young boy was diagnosed with Leukemia and the doctor told him that he only had two weeks to live. Unlike most kids who would have wished to meet a famous person or go to some exotic island, Brenden wanted to feed the homeless. He said, “ I was driving home form one of my clinics, and I say a big group of homeless people and I wanted to help them”. He inspired the whole town, everyone was pitching in, and it spread more! People across the country were donating food and over the coarse of two weeks he raised tens of thousands of dollars. All this kid wanted for the last days of his like was to make other people happier. That touched my heart. This matters to the world because if we had more people who cared the world’s poverty and problems would disappear. It also reminded me about my fried Joe who created a program called Moji, which makes T-shirts, and 100% of the profits go to a foundation, which helps drill well all over the world in places where one in six people die from unclean water. Another foundation is Tom’s shoes. I you buy a pair of shoes form this company, they will donate a second pair to a child in a 3rd world country with no shoes. This matters to me because if I give a want a little less for Christmas this year and I give a little more, I can make so many more people happy this Christmas. I asked my parents for a pair of Tom’s shoes and a bought a Moji T-shirt, but I can still do more.

In Karl Fisch’s Learn Something. Pass It On, what matters to him is knowledge and communication to other people. He lets us know that the reason that he blogs is so that he can let the world know about anything that he knows or has just recently learned. He read an article about during thanksgiving people share knowledge and facts with their families. People pass down stories, experiences and adventures with other, this matters to the world because, if everyone knows each other’s experience then problems will decrease. This matters to me because if I know other peoples stories then I will enhance my knowledge about the world.
