If I could time travel, what year would I travel to and why? This is a good question. I immediately think of movies and shows I’ve watched (Back to the Future, The Flash television series, the new Spiderman) where messing with the past may impact the future in ways we’ve not anticipated. There are so many good responses. Do I travel to 1963 and try to stop the JFK assassination? Should I travel back to September 11, 2001 and do something about it? Or, do I travel back to high school and change the trajectory of my life by being a better student and fully taking advantage of all the resources and opportunities that could have launched me somewhere different. I don’t know.
I know what my answer is. I think of my life now and of the most disruptive event in my life and the life of my children. I would find a way to stop that because where we are is not where we should be. But life happens and things done and undone ripple through the years. I would travel back to 2018 and save someone who was drowning. That’s where I’d go.
