the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Similar thoughts from Poland, Spain, and Lithuania

From Poland comes this query:

Why are people so rude to persons who they don't even know?

And from Spain:

Why are we always worrying about what makes us different (race, religion, country, tradition, language) when we should have a little more perspective and think about our true essence, the things that make us all be human and start acting as a single and more mature being?

And from Lithuania (summing it up nicely):

What is the highest value of human life?
It is, after all, all about what value we place on the lives of others, in addition to our own. I wish I had the answers to these questions. I wish we all did.
