I liked both speakers' opinions and explanations on this story, but I mostly agree with what Rebecca said in the video. She said, "people should not go along tradition without thinking". A group can move us in the wrong direction, or just because the group has agreed to do it, doesn't necessarily mean that it's moral or good to do".

Something so ironic that caught my attention was the names "Graves" and "Summers" who were the ones helping each other run the game. Graves was assisting Mrs. Summers in the process of the game. When the story begins, it tells us how peaceful, lovely and bright it is the day of the lottery, it's "summer". But it all turns into something horrifying at the end; it turns to "grave". It was so amazing and interesting for me to read and learn that death "walks (works) together with life". This also shows how much can be changed from just one agreement of action and opinion; people can change from being "with you" to "against you" real fast. Mrs. Delacroix and Tessie were chatting before she was revealed as the winner of the lottery, but as soon as it happened, Mrs. Delacroix picked up a stone so heavy that she needed both hands to carry it. That's what happens in real life as well. People often victimize others without questioning why, and they do it like it's nothing serious or a big deal.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
