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!

I could not do this

Renate, from Austria, describes a situation involving the injury of a friend's dog by a careless driver whose only remark to the owner was "it wasn't my fault." The question?

What would you do if you hurt an animal in a similar way? Then, she went on to ask (and this is the real question):

What is the worth of an animal's life?

I'm glad this question has arrived in my life now, and not a year ago when I'd just lost my cat, my pet, my pal of 16 years! Then, I couldn't even have typed the sentence.
