Day 24—One Person from History
Today's post is about one person from history I'd like to spend a day with. There are sooooo many people that I'd love to have the opportunity to talk to even if it's only ten minutes, but to spend a day with? That's a tough one. How can I choose just one when there are so many people who have lived amazing lives? People who have survived unimaginable tragedies and who have persevered in the face of those horrors. I couldn't choose just one so I'm cheating today and listing three, not necessarily my top three, but ones that came to mind when I saw this challenge. (I did not include Jesus on this list because I believe I will have the chance to talk to Him.)
1. Corrie Ten Boom—There is no questioning this woman's dedication to society. Her selfless sacrifice for others is inspirational. I would love the chance to have one conversation with her, to ask her what made her give her life for others. I suspect it's because that was just who she was.
2. Ronald Reagan—What a life this man led! From an actor to President of the United States. His presidency is consistently referenced even in the current political climate. On top of that, he had a wicked sense of humor, loved this country, and left behind a legacy few will ever be able to emulate. I doubt one day would be enough for me!
3. Lucille Ball—Long one of my favorite comedians, Lucille Ball had a never give up spirit. Even an illness that prevented her from working for two years didn't stop her from fulfilling her dream of being an actress. She didn't stop until she achieved her goal, and I can only imagine the wealth of knowledge she could impart to someone trying to fulfill their own dream!
