The Barron Perspective interviewed multiple members of our school community about what they are grateful for and what gratitude means to them.

Florence Frempong: “I’m grateful for family, food, and my culture. I’m grateful for life in general.”

Mr.Holman: “I’m grateful for having the best job on the planet, and doing what I feel like I was put on this earth to do, and my family.”

Ms.Klepchick: “I’m grateful for my job and my family. Also my pets”

BP: Do you think it’s important to show gratitude? If so, why?

Nathan Jarrett: “Yes, I believe that appreciating what you have makes you a much happier person.”

Megan Shala: “Yes, I think it is important because I don’t think you can live your life to the fullest if your not grateful for what you have”

As you can see, showing gratitude can brighten someone’s day. You should always be grateful for all of the people and opportunities you have because looking on the bright side will make you feel more optimistic!
