  2. I think that it's quite cool how it's negative and than backwards it is positive with exactly the same words. I belive the message is very strong and that everyone should know it and believe it.

    This video is so touching and interesting at the same time, whoever made it must have worked extremely hard.I think the message in this video is if you look at lifes downs your life will be based on these bad moments,but if you look at lifes ups you can be happy and contented with your life.

  4. I think that it is a very clever clip and it puts a very strong message accross "lifes what you make it". This clip would have inspired alot of people to make changes.

  5. I found the video really interesting and suprising.
    I loved the way it was really negative then all she did was read it backwads then it was all posotive.
    Some people say global warming is here and what this video is saying is in order to stop it we need to choose to reverse what we have done.

  7. I believe that this is a great video, I really like the way that it is set out and when it reverses it uses the same words and it makes sense. I know that this is a very powerful video and it is worth your time. The video seems to be simple but when you think about it, it contains some very powerful ideas.

  9. I like the way it goes backwards and still makes sense. It starts negative and and when it goes backwards it is positive. I liked the part when she says theres hope.

  10. I really liked the last line where it said and all of this will come true unless we choose to reverse it because then they reversed the story and its positive. I think this has a good message.

  11. This video is saying to us that life’s what you make it,I personally choose to reverse because I don’t want my life to be blown away with the wind.

    I found the video interesting because the first time she read it,it was negative then when she read it backwards it was positive. I learnt by making positve choices, it will end up positive.

  13. I really liked the last bit of it saying" It is foolish to presume that there is hope." Then she reversed it to "There is hope it is foolish to presume that my generation is lethargic. I thought this was powerful because its right at the end where she reversedit from negative to positive.

  14. The video was very cool. In life whatever choice you make effects all of us. When she read it. it was very negative and when she reversed it, it was very positive. The main meaning was that whatever choice you make makes your life how you want it.

  15. I think this was very clever because she wrote a you-tube clip then read it then read it backwards, one part i really liked was when she said lethargic and apathetic because they are big words and i like learning new words.The message is positive and understandable once i heard it it made me think about my choices.

    I really like it how it is so negative and then it reads it backwards and its possitive.Its really cool how its set out and the message inside it is really cool. the message is be possitive about things.

  18. I like the video it really got through to me. The line I liked the most was” family is more important than work because it is true. Anther thing that I liked was how it reverses and then say it backwads , and it sounds better that way.

  19. I think that this video is telling us life is what we make it and that our choices can make a difference to the world.Our lives depend on our choices.This video has tought me that I can make a difference with my choices.

  20. I think this video is really good because she explains how she can change her life by being possitive and care about her family instead of work. She also makes people want to change how they live their lives. She used really good language and powerfull sentences .

    I think it means don't take orders from someone else, to make your own choices and don't make them bad ones. Don't make your future apathetic and lethargic, don't think work is family because family is better than work

  22. I think the video was cool because it tells you the world is how you think of it if you think,the world is great then you will engoyit if you destroy ourearth you willthink it is hopeless.If you enjoy it you will have hope and think that in the future you will live in a world you helped to make.

  26. Wow this is a great video, the way it is done is very clever, we both enjoyed the way it flowed. When our parents saw it at first they thought it was a bit strange to be watching someting so negative that is of course until it was reversed!
