This is something that I do every now and again when I’m bored, or when I need something for mind to do instead of obsessing about my problem-of-the-moment. Sometimes I find myself doing it when I’m frustrated with what our leaders are (or are not) doing.
It’s an interesting exercise, and there is no right or wrong answer. I plan to do it with Josh when he’s old enough to ‘get it’, and I’m putting it out there for you guys now, in the hopes that it will spur an interesting conversation.
It’s pretty simple, really… Just answer the following questions, within the parameters given.
You are given the assignment to travel back in time, and change one thing in History. Where do you go? What do you change and why? How do you think things would be, present-day, if you did change that one thing?
Would you keep Jesus from dying on the Cross? Cause Hitler to stay in jail and die there, thereby thwarting his rise to power? Change Amelia Earhart’s flight plan, so she didn’t vanish? Maybe you’d sit in on the writing of the Constitution, and add, clarify, or block a provision?
And no fair saying “I wouldn’t change anything.”
