Post your DQs, FQs, comments & links here, Section 12/groups 1 & 3.

Group 3- Group 3 discussed question six concerning freedom. We looked at the cultural, political, and moral aspects of freedom. Overall, we decided freedom is good to an extent.-Annie
Group 1 - Group 1 discussed how we think having a personal philosophy contributes to living a good life. We thought that having a personal philosophy allows one to establish their own moral values. It also allows them to live by their own accord, and to be happy with who they are.

      P.S. Group 3

      Also, my This I Believe essay that I really connected with:

      Are we supposed to say why?
      I really feel like this essay can connect with most people. Most people get told what they are, rather than believing their own thoughts of what they are. It could take years, like it did for Cherie, but hopefully some people can see their worth before the person who has put them down has passed.

  10. Section group 3

    DQ: Are ancient peripatetics any different from today's peripatetics?
    FQ: Why has the word "peripatetic" changed in today's modern society?
