  1. The second video wins for me because I felt a stronger connection to it since it was talking about making memories and living the most of life. That’s what I’m trying to do right now and I became even more thankful for those memories I have currently made and will make in the future, I don’t want to think back on my life and feel I’ve done nothing so I am definitely thankful for the memories I have.

    • That’s good, I’m glad that you are striving to make more memories. That’s actually also what I am hoping to do. I also want to make many memories. Its worth it in the end.

  2. I think that the first one wins because it has such a unique and inspiring story behind it. It is good to see society still giving and caring like that driver. These videos made me thankful that I have 2 loving parents who can always be there for me even though we fight sometimes. Also the fact that by having 2 parents they provide me with the things I need to live. And for that I’m grateful.

  3. The second video wins because it is more fun and inspiring to me to make sure you don’t miss out on experiencing other cultures in your life.
    The first video made me thankful for my family and all that I have in life. (House, school, extracurriculars, ect.)

  4. Id say that the second video won, it made some really good points about how we have been so focused on money and materialistic things that we’ve forgotten how to actually live and enjoy life. The second video just sort of made me think about what I’m going to have to look back on when I’m old and dying. Even though I liked the second video better, I think the first one made me a little thankful to have the people I do in my life. Because the boys were orphans and alone, it made me sad but it also made me realize that I should appreciate the people I love more.

    • I totally agree with you! I did enjoy the second video. It represents a story of the life we forget to live. We are so caught up with our phones, staying indoors, being anti social, and not taking risks that we ourselves are not making life any interesting, or fun for that matter.

    In my opinion, the first one wins. It wins because it shows determination and endless amounts of love. The two boys travelled to go see the one boy’s mother who laid in a cemetery, If that doesn’t show love then I don’t know what does.
    The first video makes me thankful for that I still have both my parents in my life at this age. Many children don’t have someone to look after them or even for them to look up to. I’m grateful to have my mother and father in my life helping me day by day. For the second video, I find it makes me thankful for all the privileges I have such as travelling. I’m able to experience the world as my life goes on and not everyone is given that opportunity. Overall, I’m thankful for the life I have.

        Yes actually. I used to be a super shy and nervous person due to unfortunate circumstances growing up. I knew two years ago it was time to get a job and branch out but it was something I never thought I was capable of doing due to being so reserved. Thanks to my parents and family overall, I was able to gain a little bit more confidence and get not only one but two jobs. Without their love and support, I wouldn’t be where I am now, nor would I have made the friends that I have. To me, that has been my greatest accomplish so far.

  6. The first video wins for me because I like that it shows someone helping out of the goodness of their heart. The act of kindness that is shown is truly heartfelt and sympathetic with the intention of helping and that is special to me. These videos make me thankful for my close friends and family. The first video made me think about how lucky I am to have the close family that I do and the second made me thankful for everything I’ve been able to experience throughout my life through travel and adventure.

  7. I believe the second video wins because it has more to do with the theme of enjoying life. This video demonstrates how to take risks and live live to the fullest. The second video makes me feel thankful that I still have the opportunity to live my life to the fullest because I am young and live in a very fortunate country.

  8. The second video wins because i feel what the message was trying to betray was more towards me. I 100% agree that our society is all about the wrong things and chasing money and success is not going to buy you happiness. I believe that the good memories we make among our family and friends will be the memories we make not the money you make and how big your house is. Of coarse that’s great and all don’t get me wrong but that’s not the number one thing to chase with society telling us it is.

  9. The second video won for me. It was much more relatable to my life and made me think about what my aspirations in life are and about whether I have really been living. It made me think about what moments/ experiences I would think about on my death bed from my life so far. Do I have a lot of really memorable moments or should I try to make sure I try to do a lot more fun things in the future. This video reminded me that life isn’t all about money and materialistic items which is always a good thing to keep in mind.
    Although the second video won the first video made me thankful for my parents and family. This video reminded me that we are lucky to have parents because not everyone in the world has some. My mom is a very important person in my life and I can’t imagine where I would be without her. The boy no longer has his mother and that reminded me to be thankful for mine.

  10. The second video wins for me! I really liked the video and how it showed beautiful places in the world and people having fun and enjoying life. It makes me want to go to a hot place on the beach and relax and try new things. My parents told me yesterday that we are going on a hot trip this coming year so this video really got me thinking of where we could go!
    This video makes me thankful for the opportunity to have traveled some places with my family and many more in the future! I love exploring new places and seeing different cultures!

  11. For me the second video is the winner. It made me thankful to live in such a beautiful and free country that if you want to leave and travel the world you can. I always have wanted to travel and experience different cultures so that video hit home with me. The first video made me thankful that my mother is alive but I couldn’t really relate to it on a personal level. I am fortunate enough to never have someone close to me pass away so I cant really relate.

  12. I believe that the first video wins because It shows love and perseverance. The two orphan boys who keep getting denied access to visit their home town don’t give up. Once they get to their home town to see their mom It’s revealed that his mother is buried in the cemetery.
    These videos make me thankful that both my parents are still living and together. Its tough for me to imagine being an orphan or growing up without a parent. My parents are people I rely everyday and Its tough for me to imagine living without them.
