I think that the best thing that we can learn from the mother courage reading and the video about DJ Gregory is that you should do what you set yourself to do in life without anyone telling you that can’t do because nothing is impossible. I think the most memorable thing for me from the reading was that pat furlong was so persistent with what she wanted and never gave up when some of the doctors turn her down. To me this is important because one of my cousins has a muscular dystrophy disease but I’m not really sure what type it is since it’s a really emotional subject to talk about with my uncle. I know that my cousin got diagnose when he was around one and hasn’t been able to walk since them.
““I love what you’re doing for the fifteen per cent of the patients—now you got to do something for the rest””. This is the quote when pat is talking the CEO of Therapeutics, which was developing a drug for kids with duchenne. I like this quote because it shows how persistent pat was with getting done what she wanted. I also like the fact that she was doing this to help everyone that needed help and not just do it for her own kinds. Another story that shows what persistent can bring to you is the story of DJ Gregory which was told that he would never walk because of the disease he had but yet in 2008 he did something that nobody had ever done before which was to walk every whole in every PGA tournament that year.


  1. It is amazing how some people are told they will never walk in their life and them=n they do. But DJ walked something that no one else has ever done before! A huge accomplishment.

  2. I agree with you, nothing is impossible. DJ showed us that you can do anything you want as long as you set your mind to it and have determination.

  3. I think that it was a great thing that mother courage did to help others in need and to try and figure out what could help these children in need. Also to have watched some parts of DJ walking the PGA tournament was inspiring because he was told that he was never going to be able to walk.
