Katniss taught me to appreciate my flaws just as much as my good qualities. Peeta taught me about unconditional love and to never give up hope. Gale taught me that fire and hatred are not always the answer. Haymitch taught me to never judge someone without knowing their story. District 12 taught me about poverty and helplessness. The Capitol taught me about decadence and humanity. The Hunger Games trilogy taught me about love, loss, rebellion, survival, deception, politics, the realities of war and to stand up for a cause that’s worth fighting for.
