Winning School Speech 2009 from myles webb on Vimeo.
Excellent post, I will show this speech to my students. They need to hear this excellent message. Also, thanks for using vimeo, youtube is still blocked and we can't see the videos posted there.Mr. C
It was nice, she's right you shouldn't judge someone just by their appearance. Like if someone wears glasses, you would think their a geek, but what if they like the same things as you.
that was very very good you should make more of these video's.
Your speech has a good point but there is also some flaws. One flaw could be that your walking home and you see a man in a van slowly coming toward you he could be a nice guy but I am not going to stay and find out. But all in all you should get to know someone before you judge them. I have judged someone when I've first seen them and some of them have become to be some of my really good friends. I think that we judge people when we fist meet because that gives us and idea of the person we are meeting. Honestly I think that we will never stop judging people because thats just in human nature.
Today in class we saw a video on how people should not judge a person before they know them and that was a very good speech and that is true you should never judge a person by how they act or how they dress or talk cause you should get to now that person first.
When you see somebody that looks scary or acts weird, you shouldn't judge them right there at that time.The person could be someone important or some on nice, for example the owner of the store Wal-mart is a hill billy looking guy and you would think that he isn't someone important but that hill billy looking guy could be a multi-million or even billionaire. So before you judge someone by their appearance you should get to know them.Well one time I started judging this person and I found out he was a my uncle and now he is my favorite uncle.
I have always judged a person by how they looked the first time I saw them, but watching this made me think that they might not be all that bad. You just have to get to know them a little better. Most of the time people aren't exactly what you think. I have made many mistakes about how I judged someone just based on what they looked like. I think people probably judge others by how they look because we don't want to take the risk of being wrong and getting hurt by them.
Today in Mr.C's class we saw a video that talked about how people talk or judge other people of how they look and to be honest I think she is right cause usually people do judge others by their looks or if there fat or if there skinny or if there pretty or ugly, why they care they should care about them selves, well they should care about other people to but they shouldn't care about how they look. :) :D
When I look at a person it is true that I only judge that person by the way he/she looks and by the impression he/she makes, instead of getting a chance to actually know that person by talking to him/her. When I look at it in a different way, it is actually unfair to judge people that way without even getting to know that person. I mean, how do you think that person must feel if you just take a look at him/her and the first thing that comes up to your mind is freak, or if that person is wearing glasses you automatically think nerd or something like that. I think the speech given from the Melville Intermediate school was great because that speech is absolutely correct on everything it says. I think the next time I see a person , like a new student from school, I'll just not think about anything and just go up to that person and try to be friendly and try to know that person. Once, when I first met one of my cousin's friends, I thought she was going to be mean and I thought she didn't like me, but when I started talking to her, she was pretty cool and I even ended up being her friend. I think everybody should just go out and meet new people without making any opinions on them and just learn new things about them.
Excellent post, the speech had a very excellent message. People should not judge people by the way they dress or look. i have judged people before, now some of them have became my best friends. Plus, people who judge people are just big bullies.
This speech had some interesting facts about other kids, or people judging other people by how they are and what they wear. Nowadays people don't even bother to stop and think before they make they're mind about them, and some people actually take the time to get to know them and then make there mind about the person that they just met. Some kids judge other people just to get attention, and some kids do it to fit in. So unless you haven't walk in their shoes don't judge them by the outside but on the inside...
I think that this was a good speech and people should not judge others they might have a good personality or a bad one it doesn't matter of what people wear. Ur still the same person
Must the time ,When i see someone .I look at their face , and i went to know his name first . I went to know about his life first.If he is a good boy or dad boy . If he is a good boy then i want to know everything about his family.That's all i have t0 do .
I would get to know a person before I started judging them because if you judge before you know someone you are not always right cause some people may be nice and look mean or look trashy. Yes and that is way I learned not to judge people by the way they look cause some are better or worst than the may look. We judge people at first sight because it is a natural instinct and our parent have taught us to stay away from weird or strange looking people. A good way to stop judging people is to not pay any attention to their clothes or looks and talk to them before you decide where you should categorize then.
Normally I try not to judge people by the way they look or dress, but its really hard not too do that and all of us do it. Its hard not to sometimes. I made a bad judgment about the way a girl did her makeup and now shes one of my best friends. I think we do it because were either jealous by the way they look or they're not the coolest person so we have the need to be judgmental. We shouldn't do it but its almost our first instinct when we meet someone,a good way to stop is to focus on what they're attitude is like and get to know them a little better before we judge them.
I think she is right because we should never judge people by there appearance . I some times judge people by there appearance but later I try to know them better. I try to make conversation with them to see if there a good person or a bad person like a trouble maker of a pretty good friend. I try to not judge other people because you don't know if they have personal problems . I think you should know them a little so later you don't regret what you said about them. It could probably be your new best friend . That happened to be last year but later he had to move. SO YOU SHOULD NEVER JUDGE A PERSON BY IT"S FIRST APPEARANCE !!!!
'-'I think that I would try to know them better before I stay with my first impression about someone because I don't want to be talking about someone before knowing them.'-'Yes, I have made a judgment about someone and then I found out that I was wrong.'-'I think that we judge each other when we meet because we haven't seen each other before, I think we could stop this by trying to know each other right at the moment we meet.
I would like to know that person before i start to think my own impression. I havent judge others cause i know that the person i judge about might have something i also have. If someone would to judge me for who i am. It wouldn't be nice because seriously you have to respect others. There is no reason for someone to be judging anybody. Also, I wouldn't like to talk about anybody especially if i don't know that person. I think that people judge others because they are jealous that the person they're judging has so,ething they don't
I think that the speech was very very good. I think that she is very correct when she says that we should not judge people by the way they look or the way they dress. Instead we should wait en tell we meet them. After we meet them and learn what they act like and how they respect people. Then after that we should try to be their friend.
I wish that people would stop judging people because maybe they are wrong about some one. What if the person dresses all gangster but in real life maybe that person thinks that the clothes are just comfortable. When I first met my best friend, every one talked bad about her and that made me talk about her her appearance... "I thought" her clothes -more like other people thought- were just not right to wear. But then later I found out that she said that she felt comfortable. Just like I said earlier.... I sometimes wear things that I think that are comfortable and some people make fun of me but I really don't care what they say. I wear what I want no matter what everybody thinks. If other people can wear what they want to wear, then why can't I?
I will try to know the person before making a decision about them.I once made a judgment about someone and then found I was wrong.I think we judge people because we probably get mad at each other.
That was a good speech, good job.....
I hate it when people talk about you when they don't know you. I think it was good
I hate it when people judge me because of my looks that just shows they don't have enough time in there life to get to know you.
What a great speech! I will try to get to know a person before I start making decisions about them. I will not make decisions about them based solely on how they look. I have made a judgment about someone and found out that I was wrong. In my opinion, we judge each other when we first meet because we don't know enough about them to have any better opinions about them. We can stop by getting to know someone better before we are sure that we know all we need to know about them.
If I meet a new kid in school I would try to get to know him/her. I may have never made a wrong decision, because I usually keep quiet. People judge people because they think they are a people person and think that they are right about them, and we can stop by actually getting to know people.
I will try to get to know a person before making a bad decision based on what I know. I have made a wrong first impression before. I didn't really like someone at first but when I got to know her we became very good friends. I think we judge people when we first meet because you don't completely trust them. You don't know what to think and you judge them. I will always give someone new a chance and we can be friends unless they give a reason not to. I think we can stop by always giving everybody a chance.
I will try to get to know a person before I judge them because I think that I mite take that with me forever. Yes i have made a bad decision before and now i know i was wrong because I got to know that person and she became my best friend now. I think that it is a instinct how people judge other people. All people have to do is think before thay say bad things
