….have been present for one event in history, what would it be and why? Now by being present, I’m talking about actually being there. So if you choose landing on the moon, for instance, you and Neil would have hit golf balls together that would still be carrying. The Crucifixion? D-Day? Woodstock? The signing of the Declaration Of Independence? The Titanic? So many to choose from.
I guess this is similar to the question of what three people you’d like to have dinner with but I think it goes a little further because it places you in a specific time period for as long as the event took place.
I’m sure after I post this someone will come up with something really interesting and I’ll want to change my answer, especially since I didn’t give it hours of thought. More like minutes.
The first thing that came to mind was something relating to Jesus Christ. I know that’s the most obvious answer for many people and it was for me, also. But if I were to move beyond that, I think I’d pick Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.
I’ve always enjoyed history and been a big fan of Lincoln. That period of time, the war between the states, that specific battle and Lincoln himself giving his most famous speech is something I would have liked to witness.
What about you? What would you choose?
