Response 5: The Power of Half

This week, we read chapter two of The Power of Half: One Family’s Decision to Stop Taking and Start Giving Back. Please write a response to this chapter. Focus on:

  • What were your first reactions to what the Salwen family did and why?
  • What is the point of the story about the Salvant family?
  • Does this story make you think differently at all about Peter Singer’s suggestion about living a good, moral, and ethical life.
  • Would you ever consider making such a dramatic change, either individually or as a family? Why or why not?

You don’t have to answer these separately, but do think about all four questions before starting to write.
