My We Day Experience

My overall impression of the We Day event was awesome. It was breath taking and unbelievable from the beginning to the end. I am very thankful and grateful to be given the chance to go to We Day. I was really excited since I woke up this morning. I was even bragging to my little brother that I was going to We Day. It was really fun to see speakers talk about We Day and share information and personal experience. I liked how we got to walk around and get pictures, signatures, buy stuff and other things. We took tons of pictures to remember those moments. Some people were even photo bombing behind us and it was so funny. Although it was very crowded during the lunch hour, but it was expected. The concert was great, I was cheering and screaming most of the time. I had a marvelous time especially with the singers and the speakers who inspired me.

The speakers who impacted me were Mark and Craig Kielburger, Spencer West and Molly Burke. I liked how Mark and Craig took action to make a difference in the world. Their stories and experiences sent me powerful messages. Spencer was the type of guy who wouldn't give up, he is very courageous and strong physically, mentally and emotionally. He motivated me to be determined to what I want to do and to never give up. Also to redifine possible. The fact that he reached the top of a mountain using his hands with his best friends really hit me. I was kind of tearing up too. Now with Molly Burke, I like how she stays strong. She inspired me to be strong like her and to find my voice in my weakest moments. What had impacted me the most about her was when she told us she lost her eye sight. I felt sympathy for her but at the same time I looked up to her. I also liked her friendship with her dog.

For music, I can simply say I loved it! It started with Jesse Giddings, the way he introduced each speaker and singer. I just love him! The singers such as Shawn Desman, Lights, Victoria Duffield, Robb Nash and all the others were incredible. I wanted them to come to our row so we could touch their hands or something. Shawn Desman and Lights were my favorite, I've always loved their songs. I was singing along, cheering and clapping, their songs were amazing. It was great seeing people sing along too! The We Day dance this year was really fun. The dance steps were simple but I loved doing them. The cross-over, the boogie, the traffic control and the snap, clap. Oh good times.

The Law of the Few is all about a small amount of people making a difference and will eventually become larger and larger. Never underestimate the power of the few to create change.
The Law of Will is about what Nellie Mclung once said, "never retreat, never explain and never apologize". It is also about standing up for what you believe in.
The Law of We is just saying that together we can make a change. "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has" -Margaret Mead

My We Day Experience

Overall Impression:
My overall impression of WeDay was that it was simply inspiring. When Spencer West came on the stage I was just so impressed that he could do all this stuff without legs, like I didn't know that Spencer climbed up to the peak of Mount Killamanjaro. It was outstanding that I saw so much support from famous people like Lights, Shawn Desmund, and All-Star Weekend. I was so proud of myself that I got selected to attend WeDay because it changes how you act, it tells you that you have purpose in life. You're not just a simple person, you can be hero and help the other families have the life you have today.

Speakers That Impacted Me:
Molly Burke impacted me because she stood up to bullying, she fights through it everyday and she speaks with her voice proudly. She told a breath-taking story and she impacted me, on how I act. She said that she was bullied constantly at school and one day she got bullied so much she became blind. I was totally sad for her and the bullies should be ashamed. She said she was desperate for friendship and I felt a tug on my heart that really hurt. She said we are all victims of bullying, and she's right because everyday there's one person that gets bullied and the recent story about Amanda Todd is that she hung herself because she was getting all this hatred thrown at her. It's not right, if we all stand up to bullying we can make a change, a change that will make the world a much better place for the ex-victims of bullying. Not only do we use our voice to help, or to talk, but we use it to rise up to our problems and face it with all of our courage.

Mikhail Gorbachev has impacted me too because without his courage to stand up and end the Cold War, we would not have the peace we have today. He talked and talked to all the Commanding Forces of U.S.A and he ended the Cold War. He has brought upon a noble peace prize for doing what he did. He stopped 100,000 nuclear bombs and they were supposed to be launched so they can engage war. So we owe him a huge thank you because he changed the world, if one man can stop a war, if a man without legs can reach the peak of Mount Killamanjaro, then we can do anything to change the world, and imagine if we all did one thing, we would can make impossible, possible and how we can do that, is we come to WeDay and show our support by doing their campaigns.

Music:
Shawn Desmund- Nobody Does it Like You
Lights- Toes
Robb Nash- I don't know the song
Tyler Shaw- "" ""
Justin Nozuka- "" ""
All-Star Weekend- "" ""

The Law of the Few: An action that a few amount of people do because they want to be a change, then later on they end up with so much support from the people that were inspired like Spencer West, he only had a couple of friends and his family supporting him, but now there are thousands of people supporting him from Vancouver, Alberta, Toronto, Winnipeg, and Minnesota.

The Law of Will: "Never Retreat, Never Explain, Never Apologize. Fight for what you believe is morally right. Like that women who stood up and said that women should have the right to vote.
 
The Law of We: The fact that together we can make a change and we can make the world a better place.

Ghandi said: "BE THE CHANGE."

 


 
 

My We Day Experience

Experience on We Day

Still can't believe that I just had the best experience I ever had at "We Day". Being there at We Day changed my impression to the world. Some people in different countries are living in poverty and doesn't even have any clean water. Kids doesn't even have any proper education. That is why We Day is a day to be the change. They inspire our generation of kids to lead global change. Being there seeing all of those speakers that made a difference to the world are truly brilliant and inspirational. There are also performers there that did amazing like Shawn Desman, Lights, Victoria Duffield and Tyler Shaw. I was so excited hearing them sing live it was a really great day. All of those people made me pumped up on We Day. Honestly I was lucky to be picked as one of the people to go there. My experience on We Day was fun, exciting and inspirational. You should spread the word and tell everybody to take action, make a difference and be the change.












Music:

The performers were Lights, Shawn Desman, Victoria Duffield, All Star Weekend, Justin Nozuka, Tyler Shaw and Rob Nash.All of the performers were great; I especially liked it when Shawn Desman, Lights and Tyler Shaw sang. When Jessie Giddings introduced them I was screaming already. Their voices was just amazing that makes you pumped up. I was singing with them to their songs and it was a lot of fun.
That day is a memory to keep.


Lights - Toes
Victoria Duffield - Break my Heart
All Star Weekend - Not Your Birthday
Justin Nozuka
Tyler Shaw - Kiss Goodnight
Rob Nash
Shawn Desman - Nobody Does It Like You


Who impacted me:

Who impacted me? Well I think all of the speakers did; Molly Burke, Hannah Taylor, Mickhail Gorbachev, Spencer West and many more. All of them did something different to make the world a better place for you and for me. They all told different stories that happened in their lives but Molly Burke had really inspired me. When she talked about her past about being bullied, it had really impacted me in many ways to stand up for bullying. For some people getting bullied like her, how can you go on and not give up? Well, Molly thought about giving up but she found her voice telling her to stand up, even though she lost her courage, dignity and her sight, yes that's right her sight! Even though Molly was blind, she was still one of the most courageous girl I had ever seen. She was inspirational.

"Never Retreat, Never Explain and Never Apologize" -Nellie McClung

Well all I am trying to tell you that you should take action, make a difference and be the change!








My We Day Expierience

I woke up this morning and I was so excited. I couldn't even sleep last night. I kept thinking to myself"This is the day I have been waiting for!" I was just so excited. I couldn't even believe it. When I first got there I was so nervous. When it started I was simply ecstatic. ALL the speeches and performances I heard inspired me, but I would like to single out the ones that impacted me the most.

The performance that impacted me the most was Molly Burke and Lights. Molly Burke impacted me because I was bullied. I sometimes still am.  I just can't believe that the girls that bullied her to the point that her vision was lost. At first I didn't even realize that she was blind until the lights went down and she said that she was. I felt like crying, it was unbelievable. Lights impacted me because she is such an amazing performer and musician. She is my idol. She inspires me to follow my dreams and believe.

Another great We Day in the 'Peg. These days I have so much faith in this generation. Keep walking the path! #weday
I had such an amazing day. Thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. It will forever impact me and how I think of ME TO WE!!! I don't have any pictures/videos because I don't have a phone or ipod:(

 

P.S: SPENCER WEST IS THE BEST !!!

Social Justice Case

It's not fair because in the first place, the person stole and only has to go to jail for 40 months. The man that's homeless only stole $100 and only went to jail for 15 years.

Chantelle's proportion post

Part 1 ----------- 

Ratio: A ratio is a relationship or comparison of two numbers of the same unit. for example like 1:5, but you could also put it in words, like  1 Mr.Harbeck and 5 students.


Rate: A ratio is a relationship or comparison of two numbers of a unit that isnt the same.


Proportion: a relationship that makes two rates or ratios are equal.



Part 2 --------

1. 5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about _____km/h.



2.Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns.  Emma earned $75 last week.  How much money did Emma save last week? she saved $21 last week

Rate: is a ratio that compares two quantities of different units







Proportion: A relationship that says that two ratios or two rates are equal. Can be written in a fraction form

Part 2

 5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about _____km/h.




2.  Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns.  Emma earned $75 last week.  How much money did Emma save last week?


Part 3

Part 5

http://www.concurringopinions.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/CrimeInAmerica2.jpg

1. No It`s not fair. 
2. No it`s still not fair even the proportion disagrees. 

3. The reason why it is not fair is because that homeless man got sent to prison for 15 years for stealing a 100 dollar bill which he gave back. While the other guy the Ex-Ceo who stole 3 Billion Dollars only went to prison for 40 months which is about 3 years.

4. If I was the judge I would sent the Ex-Ceo to 47 years and one month of imprisonment because I researched about this guy named Allen Stanford and he stole 7billion dollars and got imprisoned for 110 years. So then I divided 110 by 7 which equaled around 15.7years. Then I multiplied it by 3 to get 47.1 years and 3 billion dollars. Also I would send the homeless man to around 1-3 months of imprisonment because all he was that he stole a 100 dollar bill then he gave it back afterwards. But what the homeless man did I think was attempted Robbery





Bonus Question







Question:
How tall is the tree on the left?

Answer:
or approximately The guy is Canadian because he is walking in Assiniboine Park. The average height of a Canadian is 6 ft so then I multiplied him by 3. So then I got 6*3= 18 ft. So the tree would be 18 ft tall

Isaac's Proportion Post

Here are some definitions for some words

RATIO- Comparing different parts of a whole to each other. For example, for every 4 oranges you have, 6 apples I have. Or 4:6



RATE- Comparing two quantities measured in different units. An example of this could be every 100g of salsa you buy, you pay a  $0.81





PROPORTION- A relationship that says that two ratios or two rates are equal. an example of this would be, I can run 12 laps around the oval in 8 minutes. try to figure out what time I get if I run 1 lap.





1. 5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about _____km/h.

First you need a word ratio of hours and km. Then on km you need 360, and on hours 5. Then for hour you need 1, but you don't know what the km is. to get it, you need to multipie five by 72. So since you have to it to one side, you have to do it to the other. 1x72=71. In one hour you can go 72 km.


2.Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns. Emma earned $75 last week. How much money did Emma save last week?

The word ratio for this question is dollar and money earned. Then you put 1 dollar on the top and 28 on the bottom. Then you put 75 dollars on the top, but you don't know what the bottom number is. To get it, you have to multiply 1 by 28. THat =28. So then 78/.28=268. 268 cents equals 2.68. So Emma saved 2.68 last week.




One way that 3/4 is= to 12/16 is that if you multiply 3x4, it equals 12. The same if you multiply 4x4, it equals 16.
Another way to figure it out is to divide 12/16 and 3/4. If you divide both of them and it equals the same answer, they are equivelant. 12/16 and 3/4 both = 0.75.
The last answer to figure out if there equivelant or not is to cross multiply. 3 and 12 on top and 4 and 16 on the bottom. then multiply 3 by 16, and 4 by 12. When you multiply both of them, they both equal 48.













For the jailer who stole 100 dollars, and the 3 billion fraud, the terms are outrageously unfair. This does not seem fair because, if you used the ratio for 100 dollars for 15 years of prison, the people who stole the 3 billion dollars are going to be in jail for a bit longer than a lifetime. If I was the judge, the business that had the 3 billion dollar fraude shouldve gotten a life sentence in prison, or should've had to pay everyones money back. The homeless guy however, should've only had a 4 month term in jail and should've gone to probation for stealing.
