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!

From Belgium comes this inquiry:

If you were blind and deaf, would you want to live?

The writer goes on to ask:

Should we let a blind and deaf person live or wouldn't it be more merciful to let them sleep forever so they can start a new life?

Well, in my opinion, those are two entirely different questions. What I might do - for myself - is one thing. What I would do - for someone else - another thing altogether.

*What would Helen Keller do?
