    I think the main idea of this video is that everyone can do extrodinary things. In the begining of the video it said the this woman lost her hearing. Then it said this man was thrown off a horse and broke two ribs. To me it might mean peaople getting hurt and then getting better. Also people braking world recerds!

    I really liked that video, but it kind of disappointed me because there was only 3 women.

    I think the main idea is even ordinary people can do extraordinary things. because JK. Rowling the auther of harry potter use to be a wellfare mom and look at her now.

    I think the main idea is to never quit and believe in yourself because all of those people were told they couldn’t do something, or didn’t make a cutand didn’t have very much, but they all didn’t stop doing what they wanted to and believed in their selfs and they found success. I think this means for me that I can do what I want to and I’ll find success.

    I think that the main idea of this text is that you can do whatever you want to, you can do extrodonary things, and it doesn’t matter where you come from or who you are- only you decide what you can do.What this might mean for me is that, even though everyone in my family says I can’t be a singer or musician, I can still do it- like John Lennon, when his aunt said he could “never make a living playing guitar.”

    I think the main idea of the video is that anyone can do something extrodinary if they try. That they can help the world, if the just didn’t give up hope. For example, it said that Michael Jordan didn’t make his high school’s basketball team, but he has won 6 world championships. He never gave up hope, so he got his dream. If everyone persevered, so many more people will have done something important. They may not be recognized for it that year, 2 years, or even 10 years. They may never be recognized for it. But they did it. It’s all that matters. Just don’t give up hope, and follow every idea through to the end.

    I think that the main idea is the underdogs can be the most sucsessful people around. I think this video is saying to me is don’t give up.

    What I think the main idea is, of the video ordinary people doing extraordinary things, is that anybody can be a somebody no matter what happens. I think this because it said in the video Michael Jordan didn’t make his high school basketball team, yet he has won six world championships and is famous. What this video to me means is persevere and never give up, you will reach your dreams if you try hard enough.

      Hard to believe the best basketball player ever didn’t make his high school team!

    I think the main idea is that if you put your mind to it you can accomplish anything even when you don’t try you can accomplish something.

      How does that relate to you?

    I think the main idea is that there no such thing as ordinary people, because we all might one day do something special. Like how J.K. Rowling used to be very poor, and now shes the author of one of the most famous childrens series ever (which is also my favorite series). And how Miachel Jordan couldn’t make it on a high school basketball team, and now he’s famous for being a great basketball player.

    I think the main idea of the vido we just wached is that ordinary people can make the different in other peoples lives. I doesn’t mater if you are from a nother country you can still make a differnce. what this mean to me is that even though my cousins think i can’t sing and dance I know if I keep on trying i will be sucsesful.

    I think the idea of this video is that people can do extraordinary things. What that means is the video tries to encourage you to do extraordinary things, just like the people in the video (eg. Neil Armstrong, the first person to land on the moon).

    I think the main idea of the video is that anyone can do any thing. I think this because in the video is anyone can do any thing I think this because in the video it said that Michael Jordan didn’t make the basketball team for the school but now he plays in the NBA.

    I think that the main idea of the video we watched in class is about sreading your wings and flying around the world I know this because in the video it said “spread your wings” and too me it sounds like spread your wings and fly around the world. Bye for now…
