Today I read "The Gift Of Magi" by O. Henry. It spoke to me in a sense that the simple things are the most enjoyable. O Henry uses the protagonist, Della, and her spouse, Jim as an example for how people will sacrifice themselves for their loved ones or people who they care about.
The author wrote this piece to show that more things are valuable than money. You don't need to be rich to be happy. In the story, Jim and Della had each other, and that was most important.
I enjoyed this piece because it really shows how you don't need everything you want to make you happy. Sometimes it just enough to be with your loved ones. In a school like Fenn, where kids are definitely more privileged than others, we all need to remember this.
All in all, "The Gift of the Magi" was a great story that doubles as a morale that everyone should live by. That young couple that could barely afford their apartment, turned out to be a symbol for much more.
