I was a Political Science major here at BC until last week when my proposal for an Independent Film Studies major was approved. This makes me only the second Film Studies major here. I discovered that Political Science did not interest me, and I have found an area where, for the first time in college, I enjoy learning and look forward to a possible career in the area. As a result of this change, my life has changed dramatically. I am anxious to learn and excited about my future.

It was recommended that I read the story on the web site because my situation echoed The North Star. This could not have been more accurate.

This is an absolutely amazing story and I would like to know where I can get a copy of the book. My mother is a teacher, who shares your philosophy and has done so in education for almost 30 years now. I know that she would love this story as much as I do.

I wish I could truly explain how absolutely perfectly this story relates to my life, but I can't even think of the words to begin with. I would like to thank Peter for his wonderful story from the bottom of my heart. It is truly remarkable and I will certainly pass this on to many other people. This is something I would like to have so that I might someday to be able to read it to children of my own.

Thank you again.
