A Student Response From:
When there is tragedy in your life, you seems to gain a different perspective on life. Maybe that perspective was always there or maybe that tragedy actually changed the way to live. Recently tragedy struck my life, losing two close relatives at the same time to a plane accident. As I see no change, others around me have told me I have changed. That perspective of life is that of not caring or going about my day to day, as nothing really matters. What I believe is something completely different. It is not that I do not care but that some of those insignificant issues do not matter as much. I really enjoy your final “Presto Manifesto”. “Seems to me like there is more stopping than beckoning goodness. I am figuring out how to get out of its way.” I think this is very fitting with my situation and trying to figure out how to get out of its way. I am also trying to navigate my emotions at work and school with positive emotions so that I do not not lose sight of what is important to me.
