The Buried Life By: Ben Nemtin, Dave Lingwood, Ducan Penn, and Jonnie Penn

I read the book called The Buried Life and they have a TV show for it as well. This book is about four friends who make a list of 100 things they want to do before they die and then they go across the country doing the things they have on their list. It sounds easy to do, right? But its not that easy for some of the things they want to accomplish.  For anything they get to cross off their list they help out a stranger do whatever they want to accomplish. Jonnie, Duncan, Dave and Ben are best friends on a mission to complete 100 things they want to do before they die and to help and encourage other people to do the same. It does make you stop and look around and actually think about life and think about the things you want to accomplish during your life time. I believe it is an inspiring story because it might give someone the courage to try something they might have been afraid to try for a very long time. One episode I saw  I thought was good was when the four friends helped a stranger find her actual father she had never met and I thought that was very touching. I think other students would like this book because it might give them the courage to try something new or to try to change the world around them. So that leaves the question, if nothing in the world was impossible, what would you do?
