Nominated – Take that Democrats and Republicans!

I’ve been nominated for Sunshine Blogger Award by Tonysonblogger – thanks!!!

Questions I am to answer:

1. How will you make a difference in this world?

I have already made a difference in this world.  My blog has changed a few lives and I taught special needs children for over 6 years.  They have told me how I have changed their lives.
2. What is the best thing that happened to you?

Looking back now, I can say that I truly believe “All things work out in the end; if it hasn’t worked out, it isn’t the end.”  Having said this, I would rate my stroke in May  of 2010 as the thing that has changed my life the most (I am, of course, not taking my children into consideration here, as they as the most wonderful things).  The stroke took away my balance, gave me double vision, and has mess with my fatigue level and short-term memory.  However, it has also, changed my entire personality for the better (in my opinion) and taken away my OCD (I have so much time to think now).  I can no longer work, but have become a published author and a blogger (over 900 posts in about 6 years).  I play a lot of games of “Words With Friends” on FB which has introduced me to many new friends.
3. Is it necessary to have a role model in life?

Necessary?  No.  Important?  Yes.  I have had many past people I have set in my life as role models.  Most notable were Helen Keller, George Washington Carver, and many fictional people who overcame great difficulties in life in order to help themselves and others.

4. Do you believe in aliens?

I have no good reason not to.
5. Do you believe in the need for changing the present system of education?

Yes.  As a past teacher and long-time student, I can honestly say that our low-ranking in the world for education is valid.  I think we have a lot of quality people working and performing, but in many cases their hands are tied as to helping their students in the ways they truly need it.  I think our leaders depend too much on “Studies” and don’t use some common sense, at times, to figure out what we need.  I know they want to be “backed up”, but it’s not working.
6. Is “winning” everything in life?

I believe that depends on your meaning of “winning”.  If winning is beating everyone else out, then, no.  However, if winning is living a life you are proud of and one that helps others (yourself included), then, YES!!!
7. If you were given the chance to live again, what would it be?

I have often said that I would love to go back to about 6 years old and know what I know now.  That is the main stipulation I would put on living again.  It does me little good to go back and make all those mistakes again.  Just think how much I could do if I started over, but knew this time!  And, yes, if I started all over, there would be many stocks purchased when certain companies started out!  If I am going to live again, I wish to be very rich and help others.
8. Do you believe in the Big Bang Theory, if yes, why?

As with aliens, I see no problem with the Big Bang Theory over anything else.  All of it has that essential problem of “What started the very first thing?”  However, I don’t think the answer to that question would fit in most of our heads.  I believe in God, therefore, He started this Universe.  How?  However He wished…
9. Do you believe in global warming?

I have long been a believer in global warming.  I had my students watch “An Inconvenient Truth” for many years.  I still believe in global warming.  I may or may not believe in all the evidence, but enough is there that I know it is happening.
10. How do you think life will end on this earth?

Most people say “life” but mean only “human life”.  I will discuss “life”.  It seems to me that the most reasonable two ends to all living things on Earth are 1) huge direct meteor strike or 2) a huge solar flare   Your choice.  I believe either.
