    After you have listened to the lectures for each lesson you need to post a comment about something that you found interesting. You also need to post a follow-up comment on two(2) other students comments on the lectures. (If there are no other students comments in the topic then you only need to post your own comment).

    Lesson 7: I liked the point that the past is not a prison and we must not allow it to be. What happened in the past should be treated as “that was then, this is now”.
