If you had a chance to bring one person back from the dead, who would it be and why? I know it's tough question but let's try and think. I would bring my grandmother who I really loved. She died when she was 73 years old and I have a feeling she didn't have enough time to manage all things she wanted to do in her life. Her husband - my grandfather died 6 years after my grandmother, he gave up after his lovely wife passed away. I know it's cruel to think of only bringing back one person... So, I rather would bring back someone who didn't fulfill all its dreams yet.

my darling step dad. He was taken too young and through medical negligence. My mum has to face her old age alone and this should never have been. He does however live on in our hearts and the little things we say and do. I would like him to see what I am up to as an adult and I hope that he would be proud of me. Good discussion thanks.

I do genealogy so I would bring back a Grandfather 5 generations back so I could get some answers to questions that I just can't find anywhere else. I need to know who his Mother and Father were.

I think I would want to bring back either Benjamin Franklin or Thomas Edison. Being men of science, they would be amazed to see how the world has progressed. Just think how fascinated they would be to see where and how far electricity has gone, not to mention all the other inventions that have come along since their deaths. There are things I wish someone in the family had asked older loved ones, but I wouldn't want to bring any of them back, because I would hate to go through loosing them again.

It would be the young man, that evidently was the one I should have married, who was shipped home from Viet Nam in a shoebox.

I wouldn't bring anyone back, they need to be where they are and I need to be where I am and I don't think we are to meet till it's time.

As much as I would love to have my son alive again and be able to watch him grow, and teach him all of the things a Mom is suppoesed to teach her children, I know that God took him for a reason. With that said, as much as I miss him, and as much as it hurts that he is not here in my arms, I don't think I would change what has happened because it was God's choice to take him. Now, if God Himself gave him back to me, I would take him with my arms and heart wide open.

I will bring back Dr. Jose Rizal. He is our national hero. I will ask him so many questions. Most especially his principles in life. He is intelligent and most of his decisions greatly affected our lives today. I wanna learn a lot from him.

I couldn't choose to bring back just one person who was a relative or loved one. I just couldn't. I would want them all back (grandparents and friends I have lost). But I would choose someone I respect and think could still do good in the world.

I would bring back my little brother Steven. He would be 35 now. He was taken from us at the tender age of 18 in a car accident. My mum has never been the same since. We all know that you believe your children will bury you not the other way around. I can not imagine how you deal with losing your son when he is so young, it is hard enough to loose a brother but a son, well.... Also I'd like to bring him back to meet my daughter and husband I know they would have been great friends. Well I know he watches over us and until we meet again this is the best I could hope for really.

It would be hard for me to choose. It would either be my grandfather on my dad's side or my grandmother on my mom's side. They were both very very important people to me. I think it would have to be my grandmother because our time together was cut very short and I missed out on alot with her.She moved to California when I was seven and I took off from home at an early age. I didn't reunite with her until I was close close to 30. On accident at that. We were immediantly very close and she was the only family I had had contact with in many years. She passed 5 years later but there was still so much to share with her. I wanted her to be a huge part of my girls' life but it didn't work out that way. At least I got to know her for the time I did. Yes...it would be her I brought back.

that's definitely our national hero. Dr Jose Rizal. So he can spank all the crocs and corrupt officials of our government and will remind them how heroes like him risk or even give their lives for our freedom. His hardwork were now nonsense mostly if Rizal can see the current state of the country..

I have to agree with you also I would bring one my grandmothers back not sure which one I loved them both dearly. However I would bring her back for a different reason. I'm a young person, but I always ask for wisdom. I think about all the learning and experiences they took with them. I would love to bring one of them back and just really sit down and talk with one of them. I often think about all the knowledge that left when they did. But I guess I'm traveling my own road and path and I'm also learning and obtaining Godly wisdom as well.

If I really had the chance, then I would opt for my dad, I realized his great love and sacrifice for me only after he left this world.

I would bring my dad back to life.he was so full of life and vigor that we never thought he will leave us like this. He had a heart attack while he was on a long drive.No one who knew him can forget him that easily.And the family is orphaned without him.

Ya I too will bring back my granma.. because my mother lost her grandmother when my mother was at the 7.And my mother was bought up with the care of her step moter.My mother always feels sad of thinking adout her mother so I would bring my grandma back and I will dedicate her to my mother and look at the happiness of my mother..but all these can never happen ,so every human is built in with a power,in which he/she can live in imaginination what he/she likes to live with...

I will bring the Great Leader Mahathma Gandhi back again to life. I can also tell he should be back with an age of around 25 to 30. It is because his thinking at that age are too matured and revolutionary which most of us doesnt have now. Also he is needed in the current situation (issues like pakistan terrorism, Srilnkan problem etc need to be solved immediately). My choice is Gandhi with an age of 30.
