       [Dear Daniel, Thank you so much for sharing your story with our class. Hearing what you had to say inspires me to work hard and appreciate what I have. You also taught me that it is possible to move on from hard events. I really took what you said, about how you would be a miserable person all the time if you didn't try to move on, to heart.  It's amazing to me that you went through a genocide and abuse but you still are working hard for a successful future. Even after everything you have been through you have never given up.  

There are things that you are told growing up, like "appreciate what you have" or "you are very lucky to have a home and school", and in the back of my mind I always knew I was lucky.  However, these lessons are at the front of my mind after hearing your story.  It's different to hear a real life experience rather than a lecture; it definitely made me more aware and appreciative. Thank you so much for inspiring me to be a better person, realize how lucky I am, and showing me that hard work will always pay off.]
