I like how you showed that you said in your essay "i consider in everybody's feelings" not many 8th graders do that they usually think something bad but you look at the positive :)
I really liked that you started your essay with "I believe nice people are still in the world," and how you seem like you always try to be nice to people.
Wow Andy! That sums up my relation ships with my friends :) The way that you were able to just forgive and forget rather than lose a friend is powerful, and the way you returned the money. If everyone in the world could be a little more "mind based" like you then we would have no more world wide moral issues!
I really liked how you started your essay. It really helped to make the piece more interesting.
