First and foremost, for those of you who read my last post, I have to admit that I almost took cuts yesterday. Of course, it was in a small group of people, mostly family, and the person who I almost “cut” was my father. All of a sudden I remembered my promise and decided that I would let him go first. I am still good with my promise and hopefully will remain so.
Now, this is a more participative blog; I really want your comments on this one. As I have observed the devastation of natural disasters or other types of destruction of homes, I have wondered, “If I had just a few seconds to grab something in my house to take with me and everything else would be destroyed, what would I take?” Now in this context I realize that human life is most important. Making sure our family and perhaps pets are safe would be our first concern, and rightly so. But, for this project, we will assume that all those you love are safe and protected and also that you are not in need of choosing anything to sustain life, such as food or water. We will also exclude legal documents such as birth certificates, deeds to houses, and so forth. This is just simply an exercise to decide what material possession is most important to you and why.
For now, I’m going to withhold my decision. In fact, I would like a little more time to think about it, but I am very interested in what material possessions people value most. So, have fun with this and please take time to respond.
Remember that 2 Plus 2 Doesn’t Always Equal 4 [And please take time to read my original post to understand Why the Title of this Blog? (Feb. 17, 2011)]
