In the article, Simon Doonan says that some things are just unforgivable and sometimes its okay to hold a grudge. There has been a give forgiveness movement where the families and friends of murder victims are saying that they forgive the person that killed them. Doonan says that all we have are our lives and if taking them away is forgivable, then we are left vulnerable. I agree with some of what Simon Doonan, the author of the article, was saying. There are times when holding a grudge is silly and unhealthy, like if someone runs into you in the hallway. Other things, such as murder, rape, and animal cruelty are not so easy to forgive.

In the video, Suli Breaks says that society is hypocritical and that we are in school for a reason even if we don't know what that reason is. He is telling us to take our education seriously. There are going to be things in school that we don't think we will ever use in life but we should still try to do our best to learn them. He tells us that we are all good at different things. Some people might have trouble on a quiz or a test in history class but have the top grade in there class in math. I agree with the message that we should listen to what our teachers are teaching us because it will help us later in life.

In 1930's Germany, the children of the Hitler Youth and there parents had conflicts with each other. The kids were being brainwashed to believe that everything Hitler was doing was write. The parents did not always agree with what Hitler was teaching there kids. Some parents tried to teach the kids the difference between fact and opinion. They told there kids that what Hitler was telling them was his opinion and that they should form there own opinion. Some of the kids would even report there parents for doing this. The kids being in the Hitler Youth made it very hard for the parents.
