1.  Mattie Stepanek lived his life knowing that because of his disease his life would not be very long and he needed to live his life to the fullest while he could. Imagine what you would want people to say about the person that you are right now if you knew that, three people were going to stand up and speak about you (family member, friend and a teacher).  Write down who they are and what you would want each of them to say about you.  


Person A:  _________________

                     (family member)

Person B:  _________________

                           (friend)

Person C:  _________________

                          (teacher)



2. Imagine that like Mattie, you knew you needed to make your life count right now and answer the following questions. (remember that this was how he lived everyday).  

      A) Who would you want to be with during your time on earth?

      B) Would you change your current behavior or treat others differently? Whether
      you would or would not explain why.

      C) What “one thing” would you like to accomplish in your lifetime?

My mother. I would want her to say I lived life to the fulliest and that she would miss me forever. My friend Nathaniel. I would want him to say that I actually helped him out and that I would still be there even though I'm dead. My teacher Mrs.Hearttung. I would want her to say that I was a hard worker and that I was sweet. I would want to spend my last days with my friend Nathaniel. I would not change my behavior because I am perfect the way I am and also because I live my life to the fulliest already. The one thing I would like to do before I die is tell my family my true feelings and to tell Nathaniel that I'm sorry for everything.

The family member that I would want to speak at my funeral is my older brother. I would want him to say that I was a great little brother, a best friend, and that I will be missed. Also, I would want him to say that I am in a better place, and that he will see me again someday. The friend that I would want to speak at my funeral is Savannah. I would want her to say that I was like a brother to her and that I was a great friend. The teacher that I would want to speak at my funeral is Miss Marry. I would want her to say that I was crazy and hyper as a child. I would want to be with the ones that are closest to me in my final days on earth. I would change my behavior and I would treat others differently (in a good way) because I would want to leave on a good note. I would also not want to be fighting with people in my final days on earth. One thing that I would want to do before I die is meet Tim Tebow.

person A: * my mom
*i would want her to talk about how ,even though we don't get along that well, we will always love each other no matter what. She raised me by herself, she took care of me without help, she put full credit into my life, and I will never forget that.
Person B: *My friend Savannah
* She has been my best friend since we were little. She's like a family member. I wouldn't have made it through life without her.
Person C:* Mrs. Groubert
* I want her to speak for me because i want her to show every one how much i've achieved since kindergarten. I also want her to share how she got Savannah and I mixed up constantly and how she still does today.

#2. A) I would want to be with my mom, mimi, papa, all of my new friends from SMA, and some of my close friends from elementary school.
B) I would sort of change my current behavior. The way i treat my family would be a definite, because I never give them the respect they truly deserve. But the way I treat other people like people in need, no I wouldn't change that. I will ALWAYS care for people in need because it makes me think that what if it was the other way around, and it makes me feel happy that just ONE person, like me,or anybody else, can make a huge difference in somebody's life.
C) o okay this is a good one :D i would want to meet Selena Gomez, my idol :P, One Direction, and Taylor Love, the girl I raised money fro last year.

Person A would be my mom. I would want her to talk about my achievements that I made in my short life and about what she's proud of. Person B would be my best friend, Danielle. I would want her up there saying about all our fun times together and how it was to be my best friend. I would want her to say exactly how good a friend she thought I was. Person C would be my second grade teacher, Mrs. Hall. She always loves to talk about me and she would say how sweet I was as a little girl. She would say how much I have grown and the good decisions and bad decisions I made growing up.

During my time on earth I would want to spend some with my family and some with my best friends. I would make every second worth living. I would treat my mom differently. Sometimes I don't think I respect my mom enough and I want to respect her all the time. I sometimes take what I have for granted. The one thing I would like to accomplish in my lifetime would be going to a one direction concert because they are my absolute favorite boy band!

The one thing I would accomplish in my life time would be to raise money for scientists that are looking for a cure.

I would want my mother or father to speak at my funeral, and talk about my childhood, and how much I loved fishing, and the beach, and basically anything related to swimming.

I would want my best friend to speak at my funeral, and talk about how I was always there for her, no matter what it was she was having problems with.

I would want Mrs. Sells to speak at my funeral, and tell everyone how much I loved poetry, and other literary elements.



I would want to spend my life on this planet with my best friends, and my family. I would want to always have fun, and do good in school, to prove that my disability would not keep my from living a somewhat normal life.

I would not change my current personality, because I believe that if I have made myself and others happy, I must be doing something right. I would try and be a little nicer to the people I dislike, no matter how much they annoy me.

In my lifetime, I would want to write a fantasy novel, and have it published. I feel like this would get people to finally notice my work, and help me be remembered, and loved, by many.
