Hi Miss Ale,
I have a lot of things to say about this video, especially because I loved it. I think it was the best video you put on this blog yet. I love the saying, "Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things". All the video put together is very well done. It makes you think all the things you can be and never give up because if you really want something, you can do no matter what other people say. Like all the special and important people in this video, they had been kicked out of school for certain things but became one of the most famous persons on Earth. This really makes me think of all the things I can do and that nothing is Impossible. Also, the music was very nice and the pictures it showed. Some of the things they did were:
Hellen Keller: She lost her hearing and vision at the age 18 months and became and Author and Humanitarian.
He was thrown from a horse and broke two ribs. Chuck Yeager: Two days later he broke a world record, he was a Test Pilot.
Ray Kroc: He started out selling milk shake machines and finished off being the founder of McDonalds.
John Lennon: His Aunt Mimi said he would never make a living playing guitar and turned out to be that he became a Musician and Composer.
Thomas Edison: He was kicked out of school for asking too many questions but at the end he became one of the most important men in the world.
J.K. Rowling: A single mother on welfare... she picked up a pen and paper and made one of the most known movies in the whole world. HARRY POTTER.
Neil Armstrong: He flew over 200 different types of aircraft, but is known for a single step... the one of the moon... He was an Astronaut.
Henry Ford: He wanted to go into business making watches. Ended up he made one of the best. He was an Auto Maker.
Steve Jobs: He sold his Volkswagen to build 50 circuit boards, the man who changed the world... the inventor of CEO Apple Computer.
Cesar Chavez: Born to migrants, his motto was, "Si, se puede" Yes, it can be done...
Albert Einstein: Worked for a patent office when he failed to get a job at a University. He was a Scientist and one of the smartest person in the world yet.
Walt Disney: Started a movie company with $750. Went on to win 32 Oscars. He was an Animator and Film Maker.
John Wooden: He missed the final shot in High School Championship game. 10 NCAA Titles.
Dwight Eisenhower: He was denied an appointment to Annapolis. He was a Supreme Allied Commander.
George Lucas: Waived directors fee in exchange for licensing rights. He was a Film Maker, Billionaire.
Debbie Fields: At age 20 she opened a bake shop. Her motto Good enough, Never is... Baker and Entrepreneur.
Sam Walton:Trained at JC Penny's for $45 a month. Founder of Walmart.
Danica Patrick: She was the only woman in the race, Indy Driver.
Bill Gates: Dropped out of Harvard to work a little business idea. Made an application that is used always.
Michael Jordan: Did not make the cut for High School basketball team. 6 World Championships.
Mother Teresa: She found her life's calling at age 12.
All these people believed in something and made their dream come true. Take in count that you can do whatever you want to, even though people say you cant and will never go far.
See you on Monday!!!

Hi Miss Ale,
I really think that these people did ordinary things! I won't mention them al because I think Ari did! I knew most of these people and I think that they did many impresive things and some of these people are heros for many people but not all of them like Hellen Keller can be one for all blind, deaf people or Mother Teresa for all those people that need help of for those who cure people like she did! Also many of these people did extarordinary acts or inventions. I wish that when I grow up I can be a hero for somebody or to do something extarordinary. (you told me you hated the word things and you put that word in the tittle)
See you on Monday!

Hi Miss Ale
I have watched the video.I think that all this people have done something special in the world and that no matter how hard it was and no matter what people said they still kept making there wish or dream come true.I think that the phrase ¨Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary things¨ means that this people have done incredible things for us and that they did not give up in anything.When I was watching the video I thought that I there are lots of incredible things that I can do because nothing can be impossible.When all this people where little maybe they where not as intelligent or as brave(there are more adjectives to describe them)as they where older but all this people have done there dream come true.I think that the music matches with the video.Some of the things that this people did were very important for us because for example if Thomas Edison had not invented many things we would not be able to do many things as we do today.But some of this heroes have done different things for example the people like Mother Teresa who had helped the poor children and people.So all this people did different things for the world.I think that when you want to do something you should never give up on it no matter what people say because that it is your dream.From all the videos that you have putted in the blog this is the one witch I really liked most because all this heroes get remembered because of the wonderful things they did to make there dream come true.
See you on Monday!

Miss Ale,
It was striking all the people you metioned in the video. All where very good but the one I couldn't belive was the one of Albert Einstein, he wasn't accepted in the university and he didn't give up, thats very important for our life, never give up when you don't get what you want!
See you tomorrow and I hope that you will keep on placing this videos because in each one I learn something new and very interesting, like in this one!

Hi Miss Ale
This video is very moving and I loved it. It talks a lot of how people can change the world or made things that anybody believed they could. Like Jhon Lennon it said: His Aunt Mimi said he would never make a living playing guitar and turned out to be that he became a Musician and Composer, and I agree with Ariana: I really liked what it said at the end "Ordinary people doing Extraordinary things." This video is great hope you post more like these ones.

Gaborg said...

Hi miss Ale
It is extroardinary how people that sometimes fail to do something then get to make there dream come true or another thing that makes them get famous, like Ford or Armstrong.

Luli B olivos said...

Hi Miss Ale,
great video. I think that an ordinary person can be a hero but is not as easy as it seems because when you have a goal you have to be perseveverent to achive it and its ovious that you would have obstacles to overcome and you have to know that a simple brake down cant stop your persevirence to achive your goal. Being a hero is not something easy to achive.
chek out this video of life=risk:

Soory I have to do it in two parts because it donts accepts it

Taken from the video you put you see I remember to put the source.

Miss Ale did you know that DODDS WON THE SPORTS? DODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTSDODDS WON THE SPORTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Look the ones of 1st were first, the ones of 2ed were second and the ones of 3ed were thirds and DODDS WON THE SPORTS

Going to the video I liked it allot because its also funny in allot of movies they say you have to go to school to get an decent job or to be someone in life and Steve Jobs and Einstein didnt finish school. There are allot of Movies of people being lucky with some creation like in The envy kills you and allot more the guy is billionarie because of a spray that takes out what the dogs do like pi and the other thing or a boy who creates a good story and then there is a film of that. Things like that im very happy because I saw third grade and we lose everyone but one the one who saves us were the ones of first grade everyone did 86 or 82 to and they did 112 and second grande lost for 1 point and third grade wasnt last for one point. It was very funny because for one point we werent last. When they were saying the results the silence was incredible nobody talked nobody breath or move and Loni said before we say the final result nobody moves until we finish in second place with some points Fleming so me and Marcos and all the others run and jumped allong were Loni was first of that I said to Gabor that if he wins I was going to hit him and then he hits me.

See you tommorow.

HI miss Ale!
This is one of the best videos i´ve ever seen! there where some people I didn´t know and others I did know. I simply loved it it made me very happy watch this video, I don´t know why but it made me happy. Once again great video.

justo l said...

I loved the video because it was really inspiring, it shows how you can start at nothing and finish being great. It's message is never to give up, it doesn't matter if people or circumstances make it more difficult for you to achieve it. It was a really good thing to put in the blog especially when we are talking about our personal hero because it shows that you don't need to be a billionare thhat has averything at his command to achieve whatever he wants but to be someone with the willpower to do it and you don't need to finish up being famous worldwide to be a hero. It also shows that nothing can be achieved without hard work, because most of these people started at nothing. I'm sure there are lots of others, known or unknown all around the world doing the same, working hard to raise money for a living, struggling to survive or raising little companies that will later be known worldwide. That's what the video of ordinary men doing extraordinary things is all about, how hard work will always be rewarded.

Santos L.A said...

Hi Miss Ale,
I think Ray Kroc is a hero!! Neil amsotrong too. Now I really know whats a hero.

Teo V said...

Hi Miss Ale i think that this video is extremely emotional, because people who started with a normal life and then a big problem ended beiing heroes. My favourite heroes from this video are Ray Kroc, John Lennon, Edison, Henry Ford and Einstein. And the best Steve Jobs that he is dead but everyone in the world will remember him. Very good video I loved it.
See you tomorrow!

RocĂ­o PR said...

Hi Miss Ale,
I love this video and I also think like Ariana that was the best video you posted. They don't give up and and they were sure of themselves so they could do this extraordinary things, that is why they are heroes. The video is about of "Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary things". I think that these phrase is excellent, perfect like the video. Thankyou for posting it, I realy enjoyed!!!
See you on monday!

Hi miss Ale
I think that this viedo is incredible, it is the best own you put yet. It opens peoples mind because it makes you think that enything is posible if you belive.

SilvestreB said...

Hi Miss Ale
The video was very good.
I liked the video because people that started a not so good life, finished like one of the most important people of the world.

Anonymous said...

Hi miss Ale
This video is very good! Most of the people were ordinary people but then they did incredible things. They had a dream and they never stoped until they got it. All of them changed the world in diffrent ways. I liked most Steve Jobs, einstein etc.

Pedro B said...

Their all are real heros , they all have a good life and they were a great person

Manuel.B said...

I think this post is very good because these people changed the world in a different way but in each of these stories either he/she was dscapacitated or unable or a relative told him/her they weren't going anywhere but look where it got them!!

Tomas.G said...

Hi Miss Ale,
Wow i really liked this video. I recongnized a lot of people in the video. I really admire most of the people mentioned in the video.I think that one of the best people there is Ray Kroc which was the founder of McDonalds. I really appritiate he founded it. What would we do without Mcdonalds. All the people that you mentioned and many more belived they could do something and got to there goles.I think that this means that if i wan't to reach a gol really bad and i spent most of my life time trying it i will be able to do it.Like Ariana said this is your best video yet!!!!! They were at first or ordinary people with dreams or people that helped people in many ways. MAny of these people are known in every part of the world!!!!
Some of them got rich and some had a problem and died, and some are still alive today. Another person that reached her dreams that just puped into my head is Amelia Earhart witch was the first women to cross the Atlantic Ocean by plain.Like we are calling them now are heroes. Many people before told them they could not do it but they showed them that this hero could do it. These heroes are remembered for things that they did that changed the world.There were 2 or 3 people that i did not know but everybody else i knew them.Like many people said that they liked the text "Ordinary People Doing Extrordanary Things".Some of these people did more than one thing to change the world, and others did one thing witch was very important to change the world.
Not only they changed the world but there lives and the lives of other people. I liked the frases that you put to describe each hero.
Thank you for putting the video!!!
See you tomorow!!!!

Conrado MF said...

Very nice video
what i like most is that some people had been left aside and then they were one of the most important of the world.
See you Ale

Marcos L said...

Miss Ale:
Cool video. All this people did great things and also did some other, in some cases some of this REAL heroes did many things but only was recognized by only one.

GianfrancoE said...

Hello Miss Ale
This video is amazing I loved it, its impresionant how people can start from the very bottom and can finish doing marvelous things, people in this video had been kicked out or school or people had tell them that they would not never make what he wanted.(John Lennon)So I hope you keep putting videos of these tipe because I love them.
See you tomorrow

Bautista T said...

The thing I liked most was that some of them do things wrong, but continue trying new things that make them famous.

maria F said...

Hi Miss Ale
I think all this people began being just ordinary people and even some had a very sad life and something a circustance that happen make them mae a change in our like because even Ray kroc make a dffrence not only to his life but ours ( or at least mine ) life because with out all the mcdonalds that are in the world I think everything will be diffrent because I should go to eat vegetables each time someone take me out for lunch ( and that will be very bad!) in conclusion I think that they are all very importan and its amazing that from being an ordinary person they became heroes.
bye see you tomorrow.

andy e said...

Very nice this video. I like it because is truth that ordinary people can make extrodinary things. I learnt about what thing each person made such as bill gates with microsoft. It was very nice.

justina b said...

Hello Miss Ale,

francisco.a 6b said...

Miss Ale,
What a good video. It has a lot of famous people. I read the biography of Tomas Edison, but my favourite was Steve Jobs. I also like Walt Disney, but no like Steve Jobs. I was very sad when he died. There are no going to be more apple Ipods, or Ipads, or Macs, and other things.
Bye

pilar m said...

It is a very good video miss ale:
It is really increadible the life of the heroes and of the famouse people.

This video shows ordinary people doind extraordinary things.

Hi Mis Ale

All those people that now are very famus. Before they were knot enything its like a kids story because everybody finishes with a hapy ending.

See You

Gonzalo c said...

WOW I am amazed by this video because all these people started with very little or they were refused by others and they still tried and succeeded. Like bill gates he was fired from HARVARD and then he got up again and got to a point he was the richest man in the world because of how many computers with his program were sold.
Bye ale
This was the best video you put on the blog up to now.
