Big Talk: What’s Most Important to You?

Week six of Big Talk. 

What’s the most important thing to you? 

Ethan Farthing, ninth grader said, “Love is the most important thing because life without love is nothing. We would only have hate in the world; love is what keeps us going. Without love I’d do nothing; there really isn’t anything to do without it. People would just be depressed with the absence.”

Dylan Astin, eleventh grader said, “The most important thing to me is music because it gets me through stuff. Music makes you think. My past wasn’t great so it helped me through it. I relate more to music more than anything. I started really getting into music in seventh grade, but I’ve been listening to it forever. If I didn’t have music, I would be much worse off.”

Liberty Barker, Dan River senior said, “My life is the most important because if I die life will keep moving, and I won’t. If I didn’t have a life there would be no Liberty, lol. My second most important to me is my mom. She’s my wisdom, there for me through everything, and she raised me.”

Sandra Whitehead, guidance registrar said, “My family is because God blessed me with them, so I’m charged  to take care of them. If I didn’t have my family, I would have to survive knowing they’d want me to go on.”
Lucas Owen, eleventh grader said, “Faith is the most important thing to me because it gets me through the day; it keeps me motivated to achieve things. My life would be a hardship without it because I wouldn’t be able to succeed.”
Eleventh grader, Sallie Chaney said, “Films are the most important thing to me ever since I was a child. I use movies as an escape to not deal with anything. I used them as an escape because they are perfect worlds, permanent utopias. I wouldn’t want to be here because it means everything to me.”
Taylor Dodd, eleventh grader, “My mom is the most important thing; she’s my everything. She helps me through things I would never imagine I could get through. Without her, I’d be lost.”
Tenth grader, Joey Williams said, “Money is the most important thing to me because you can buy just about anything you want besides happiness. If I was without money, I would try to find another way to get some.”

Samuel Hedrick, eleventh grader said, “I think prom? It’s the most important thing to me because I am getting to go with a very, very sweet girl. I would be very sad if I didn’t get to go to prom.”

Ethan Stewart, eleventh grader said, “Henry Walker is the most important thing to me because he has taught me the most viable lesson I’ve learned my entire life through history. Without him, I would cry every night everyday; I would not be able to go to school because whenever I’d be in class I’d start crying.”

Joanne Barbour, senior said, “My family is the most important thing because family is your safe place you can always go to. I’d be very lost and lonely without them.”

Tayven Smith, ninth grader, “Gaming is the most important thing to me because it’s fun; it takes your mind off things and great therapy. That’s like saying ‘Humans can go without water,’ I would be very sad and depressed because that’s been my baby for 12 years.”

Sarah Snead, eleventh grader said, “The most important thing to me is knowledge because you can’t really live without it. It gives you so many more experiences. I would probably be fat, not knowing what to do.”

There are a variety of things people have important to them, however one thing remains in common, their life without it would be off so much worse.
