Some said a family member who had passed away.
With that response I would then ask, “What was their name?”
As they spoke their name their face would light up. A nice moment.
Others said President Obama, Thomas Jefferson, Mahatma Gandhi, nephews and nieces, etc.
All great answers and you could feel the room leaning in each time.
When it came back to me as the moderator of the discussion I said I would select the future, and would want to have dinner with my grandchildren’s grandchildren.
As I continued I said I would want to know if the world as we know it now survived as a whole.
As I thought throughout the day on this, I would also want to know, if somehow had my name been passed on to them, was there any recollection of me at all, even a memory from their grandparents?
It’s an interesting thought.
If you could have dinner with anyone, past present or future, who would it be?
And what would you talk about?
