With Honors – Filtered
Monty is a student, and when his computer crashes, he’s left with only a single paper copy of his thesis. Frightened of losing it, he immediately rushes out to photocopy it, only to stumble and drop it down a grate. Searching the basement of the building, he discovers that it has been found by Simon, a squatter. Simon makes a deal with Monty: for every day’s accomodation and food that Monty gives him, he will give a page of the thesis in return.
In “With Honors” there are great lessons learned by the characters about what is important in life and how one should treat those who seem less fortunate. Monty learned that when he took time out of his school work to help out Simon (a bum) he felt more fulfilled in life and that when one begins giving of one’s self that selfish tendencies fade. He gave up graduating with Honors from Harvard to graduate life with Honor.
