0:19 Hey, John! What are you reading?
0:22 I’m reading a book on Gandhi.
0:25 Oh! Is it good ?
0:28 Yeah, it’s really good. Gandhi inspires me deeply. He led India to independence.
0:35 Well, that must’ve been hard.
0:39 It was hard. But do you know he didn’t use any force or weapons
0:45 He just believed in non-violent civil disobedience.
0:50 That’s inspiring. If only there were more people like him these days!
1:00 Hey Chris, I need your help with something.
1:04 Sure! What is it?
1:06 We were having a Science class and my teacher asked me about Edison.
1:11 I didn’t know anything about him so I got really embarrassed.
1:16 That’s bad, Kate. He’s such a popular historical figure.
1:21 I’m not good in History. Who was he?
1:24 Thomas Alva Edison. The guy invented electricity, Kate!
1:29 Oh, great! I’m even more embarrassed now.
1:39 Hey John! I heard you were reading a book about Gandhi.
1:43 Yes, I was. But I want to read more about Abraham Lincoln now. Do you know anything about him?
1:52 Of course! He is my favorite president.
1:55 He’s everyone’s favorite president I guess. The whole country was in shock after his assassination.
2:02 I can only imagine the commotion after the shock. What’s sad is that he was killed by an actor.
2:10 I know. That’s really sad. John Wilkes Booth, right?
2:15 That’s right. Hey, did you watch the latest movie about Lincoln?
2:21 I did. It’s awesome. Daniel Day-Lewis is an inspiration for us actors.
2:27 He’s amazing. I’ll watch it this weekend.
2:36 Hey Bob, tell me the name of a historical figure you admire.
2:41 Just like that?! Hmm...okay...I know: Mother Teresa!
2:49 Who was she?
2:51 You don’t know?! Well, she was a nun and a missionary. She devoted herself to working among the really poor people.
3:02 Where was she from? And when was she born?
3:06 Gee! Gimme a break. I’m not Google. But why do you ask?
3:12 Just asking. I need to learn more about historical figures.
3:17 Oh, I see. What you need is to read more, girl!
3:26 I’m reading a book on Gandhi.
3:32 Gandhi inspires me deeply.
3:37 If only there were more people like him these days!
3:45 I didn’t know anything about him so I got really embarrassed.
3:54 He’s such a popular historical figure.
4:02 I’m not good in History. Who was he?
