Roger Ebert is a true inspiration in life. He was faced with some very hard times but managed to swim and live by a great philosophy. He wanted to make himself and others happy and thought that was the best that could be done in life. Happiness and joy are contagious and produce wonderful things in the world. I strongly believe in his philosophy and that crime starts when we are unhappy. When we are unhappy we don't really think, we just do things that we expect will make us happy again. This causes things to happen that bring other people down. If we all lived by Roger Ebert's philosophy, we might swim through a better and more fulfilling life.
When faced with a tragedy, I think that some people sink while others swim because of the people around them. I think that if the person is surrounded by people who love them and stand by them will swim. To make it out above, you have to want to get better for someone or something. I think some people swim because they have people around them that show them the light and the good things still in life. I think more people sink when they are left alone and are breathing in their own sorrow. Some people sink and others swim with the help of loved ones and their mind set.
