I thought that the assembly was really fantastic. Dr. Mike was able to send out a message through both comedy and acting. I felt really inspired seeing how he was able to combine many of his talents and studies to address pain and how everyone together feels that emotion. Before seeing the assembly, I thought it would just be some corny speech about how we have to treat others but through his amazing acting skills and knowledge, it really showed me how when someone feels pain, that they aren't alone. I liked each of the individual characters. They really showed how we can't judge people from their appearance and how they act in school. Some one who could seem like the most optimistic person in the world could really be fighting through pain at home. It really teaches us a lesson to treat others with respect and be sympathetic.

Honestly I think that because he joked around a lot, a lot of people didn't really take the assembly as seriously as they should have, but for those students that did get the message, I think it might make an impact. I think that he's right that a lot of people don't consider others' personal lives when choosing to pick on them - they don't know what other issues they've got going on and how much they're already dealing with. I don't really think that I could relate to any of the characters.

I felt that Dr. Myke was interpreting discrimination through the use of comedy. For example, the football player came out of the closet, and soon after that told a joke. It made people feel in a comfortable environment, especially since they were able to laugh. The football player might have been my favorite character because he totally took me by surprise, that someone that, "Manly" could be gay. I know that it made me really think about the term, "Don't judge a book by its cover." To me, this was the best quote that summarized the show. In addition, he brought up a story that involved a man committing suicide, and that if one person smiled, he wouldn't have jumped. This inspired me to look and greet every person I saw in the hallway, even if I did not know them. Like Rachel's Challenge, it made me feel like a better person. I feel like this was more impacting because I am still feeling the effects of Myke's assembly, where I was not really feeling Rachel's Challenge. The reason: I related more to Myke, since I was in High School, and knew what some of the things he was dealing with.

I think that the assembly went very well. A lot of people were able to relate to him and understand where he was coming from. Even though some people might not have enjoyed it because they thought he was joking around or not being real I think it was a really great program. I can't really relate to any of the characters because I haven't been put in any complicated situations as those, but my favorite character was the six year old boy. I liked him most because he is only a little boy and knows what its like to have a problem and be made fun of for it and he might grow up being insecure or get made fun of his whole life.

I thought the assembly was really good. I liked it a lot beacuse he brought new persepectives to the way that a school works, saying things like bullys are not the problem, and I agree with him. I also liked how he played the roles of different characters to show that you can't judge someone and that you don't know everyones story and just because they are going to a good college or they are a football star, that doesn't mean that their lives are perfect. Also, my favorite this was his line about what you're supposed to do and what you need to do. It's a simple statement that can be applied to all aspects of life and I think people should really think about that statement when making decisions.

i can honestly say that i cannont remember something that troubled me in the past or in the present time. sorry.
i agree with 37. i too think that his joking kept his message from being fully recieved by the students and teachers watching.

I thought the assembly was excellent. I think he balanced the humor and the touching moments well. Just like Craig Scott he obviously didn't want it to be too emotional for us. He just wanted to realize his point. It made me realize that I wear a mask to hide the fact I'm still not okay with my parents divorce and my mom getting remarried even though it's been a couple years. My favorite character was the kid and when he played the girl in therapy because I think he pointed out a lot of good facts that are sometimes true about high school students. I was also happy he didn't really sterotype.

i really enjoyed the assembly and how Dr. Myke sent out his messages through the act of comedy. Instead of the assembly being boring and him just giving us a boring speech which we've all heard before but he kept us interested in the assembly as well as informing us about different situation by entertaining us and making us laugh at difficult situations. My favorite character was the 6 year old boy because i thought the way he acted the boy out was really funny but everything he was saying was so true. He was a young boy who knows that he has a problem and that he is going to be faced with that problem for the rest of his life. The situations he was talking about as he was acting like the 6 year old he made really funny where he learned to just laught at them and be himself. I liked one of his main messages which was you can't judge somone and you have no idea of who they are or where they came from. It taught us that you should never judge someone before you get to know them and it never ever hurts to smile at someone even if you don't know them. Just a smile could make someone feel as if they do exist in the world and they are important.

I thought the assembly was interesting. I know people that fit those categories. I think the assembly was put together well and Dr. Myke was the best choice to act out the parts.

I thought that the assembly made some people think about what they do and say to other people. It made me think how my friends and i joke around like the football player joked with his friend and how they said disrespectfull thing to girls and other disrespectfull things about some one that is diferant than you.

Naug i like the eye picture! I cant actually say I can "relate" to the characters that Mykee acted out for all of us, but I do understand the message he was trying to give. I dont have a "favorite" character either because he displayed people I dont enjoy converting with. The assembly didnt touch me in any way. I'm obviously not the most heart felt person when it comes to asseblies, but when its faced in life that makes the difference and change in others. I do agree with Mykee when he described people like zebras because its true. Rarely do people step in to resolve a proble in a well mannered form. It's unfortunate, but true. To many, violence seems to be their only way of "proving" themselves. That shows their true person, to an extent. I'm honestly not sure if students were influenced by Mykee. Instead, I think they were more entertained by his jokes.

People are truely blind and ignorant. And that is unfortunate.

Dr. Mike show uses comedy and acting to get the point across to his audience. Mike believes that most bullies assault people and does not think how that effects the victim. The best quote is do not judge a book by its cover. This means you will never know a person by his/her looks or body expressions until you talk to the person and find out who they are as an individual.

I think the assembly went very well. i really liked how he went through a lot of different stereotypes. Its true that everyone wears a mask. i wear a mask by making jokes and trying to be happy and exciting when really i've been dealing with minor depression since sophmore year. my parents dont know i have depression, and they probably wouldn't care either. i know it sounds crazy but i wish i could see a shrink sometimes so then i had someone to talk to and actually be myself around for once.

Wow, some insightful stuff. W31 - tell your parents...you might be surprised what they would think!
W19 - its ok not to be "ok" with it. The realization is the start of recovery or handling it if you will. I'm proud of you!
