Relationships, very important because friends help other people through rough times, encourage them to try new things, and for that person to believe in themselves. There are many strong relationships in Okay for Now. One of the strongest relationships between two people is between Doug and Lil.

From that point on Doug always likes Lil and most of the time they hung out together.
I enjoy being there for my grandmother and cleaning her house or doing some picking up here and there as long as I have her company there while I do the work, I don't mind one bit. It's important to me to have strong family values because I feel it makes me a better person and helps me to never forget where I came from. I remember in middle school I did community service and the feeling you get from knowing that you’re being a small part of helping someone in need is a satisfying feeling. I went to Feed the Children to package boxes with everyday necessities. I also have spent some time at the food bank helping packing food for those in need.

This quote also presents how people have begun to look at him in a different manner from before. Scrooge also changes his perspective on life after the three spirits visit him. “I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all year… I shall not shut out the lessons they teach” (Horovitz 653).

Furthermore, this quote displays how he has become a positive person and is no longer negative towards most things.
And that is how each life is important. As mentioned previously, the move “It’s a Wonderful Life” displays each life is important through how George Bailey influenced people, when he finds out he’s an important part of the town, and the scene where he wishes he was never born. Throughout the essay the main points of the body paragraphs were that George helped friends and family through hard times, how the town would look like without him, and the importance of his life.

As a child and into my early teen years I often complained of being bored. I claimed that the best thing to do in Fargo was go to the mall where I would walk around window shopping because I didn’t actually have the money to buy anything. I think this thought changed when I was able to drive myself places and found the hidden gems of this unique city. I now spend friday nights going to poetry slams or eating at one of the many locally owned restaurants with my friends.

Just like in Vietnam, I started to realize that being shy around new people could keep you from becoming friends with them and there was nothing to fear.
