Week 33: On Sacrifice

Five weeks ago, the exercise was to send someone a thank you note. This week it is to do something similar, but after having completed a little reflection/research activity. So let's start there.

Take time to think of stories, true and fictional, of people who have made a sacrifice for others. Start with big sacrifices, like soldiers dying in times of war. Do some research about this, online or even by going to a library or to a museum. Then move to what might be considered smaller sacrifices, a parent giving up something in order for her child to have it, to even smaller sacrifices, someone giving the last slice of cake in the house to another. That sort of thing.

Having done that, think of a sacrifice someone has made on your behalf. Contact that person and specifically thank them for what they did. If possible, do this in person. If you can't contact this person, tell someone about the sacrifice and how it has impacted you.

In your journal, write about your experience and include a visual representation of the sacrifices you considered.
