    • Hi Thomas! I have never read this book that you are reading, but I have read a synopsis and this seems like a very interesting personal story. I like how you are tying this into your life and how you want to make change in your community. I think it is important to realize that childhood hardships last a life time, and it can be very hard to overcome those hardships and they leave an impression on you, whether that be physical and/or mental. I like how you are asking questions about the author’s chapters and trying to answer them yourself. If you haven’t already watched his ted talk, I would highly recommend it. Here is the link to his personal website, it is a good one to check out!

      Again, great questions, and keep getting inspired!
