There are some people who might feel that if they could travel in time they would go back to a time where they could "fix" the world. Even take the formula of medicines to the past to prevent polio or other diseases. Just imagine, though, the paths of the people who are here because of certain events. So many lives would be changed and not all for the betterment. If the past is changed, it would have drastic affects on the future and the present. By saving one person, you could eliminate others.
No if I could travel in time I would go back to when my grandparents, dad, aunts and uncles were alive. Because the first thing I would do is sit down and ask questions like, were did our great, great grandparents come to America from? Why was great-great grandpa called Mac? His name was Leroy M., so why was he call Mac? Was it his brogue, as one cousin stated? Another big question would be to my mother's great grandfather. Why were you murdered by a relative? I know he was tried and supposedly hung, but why the killing in the first place? What did he do that made you angry enough to react and place you in his path to be murdered? I would also love to read the court records to get a first hand view of what transpired.
I would spend time getting to really know them. Do you know what your parents wanted to be as an adult? Did they accomplish their dream, or was their vocation due to what they had to work at to earn a living?
I think I would travel to a time and place to meet the singer, Peggy Lee. I would love to ask her how she dealt with her ups and downs. I would ask if "Is That All There Is", a mirror of her own life, even though she didn't originally write the song.
Of course, if I could travel in time, I think I would do it in something rather than a telephone box like Dr. Who!
