He has such an interesting
job and he gave us a lot of good instructions about life. Yesterday
was quite a great time.
I think what he is going to
do is amazing. And I think what he's trying to do to connect
many students together from different countries is a great idea.
It helps the students from many countries communicate. That will
also be a great experience for him , too.
Though he didn’t really say
much about his trip or anything about cycling, what he said was kind of
educational. He talked like a teacher much more than a visitor of
this school. Kind of weird, but interesting speech. I feel
kind of sorry that I cannot go on the cycling trip with Mr. Briggs.
I miss the chance to be part of the New Millenium Ride, but still wish
him all the best on his trip. Bless him.

Mr. Everett told us about going
through the borders and when he got stuck at the borders. He
told us about a lot of interesting things. He likes to travel a lot
because he likes to taste interesting foods. Once he went down hill
on his bike at about 110 km/h. Then he described how he went through
all the passport checks on the bus with a driver's license. What
he does is very interesting.
Everyone has a different way
of thinking. If we all take some time and understand others, it might
help us get a broader point of view. Mr. Everett Briggs is a very
active man and he has such good qualities in him that let him go around
the world biking without worrying what might happen to him. He likes
challenges and he make me think life is worth living if you take all challenges
that come your way. This way we can understand life better.
Yesterday Mr. Evertt Briggs
talked to us about perspective. He shared very broad ideas. It was
excellent the way he explained what he was going to talk about. I
realized that there is more to people than just their appearance.
It is very meaningful to put ourselves into other people's shoes and to
look at things through other people's views. That is very wise advice
because it explains why people act the way they do. I enjoyed myself
very much and I appreciate what he taught us. Thank you very much!
It was so fun and amazing.
I can’t believe that story, but it was true! I think he is
great person in this world.

Nice speech! Now I know
how people around the world think. People around the world see the
same thing, but in different views.
I really enjoyed the talk yesterday
and one thing that I took in the most was that you should take in the scenery
and in all ways respect the villages that you might see.

It was very interesting.
I’ve had similar thoughts about travelling to new places. His talk
was very inspiring to me. I agree with almost all the things he said.
His talk and the ideas he shared help me have a different view about
things in life.

I was moved. I was interested
in the New Millennium Ride and his idea that what you do is what
you believe. It made me run for 2 miles yesterday and convinced me
that I should continue my biking practices.

I think that when he talks
about “putting yourself” in someone else's shoes, it is VERY important.
