Would you do it?

Think about the last person to pass away that you knew really well. You have the chance to give them 1 hour of life back, but to do so you have to give one year of your life. Would you do it?

I don't think so. The last person that I knew really well who passed away is my grandma. I think when it's your time to go, it's really meant to be that way. I think she had done her purpose here on earth and it's best for us to let go of her for her to fulfill her higher purpose. Although she is dearly missed by us, we know she's happy and a peace where she is now.

It wasn't the last person to pass away that I know but I can tell you that I would easily do it to give my Mom one hour of life back. She was the greatest friend I ever had and one of the best people in general to ever walk this earth. I wouldn't blink an eye to give up a year of my life for her. The last 3 people to pass away that I knew really well would not have wanted another hour of life on this earth...they were in severe pain and had wished for the end for a long time..I wouldn't bring them back for anymore of that!!! Good discussion...

If I knew they wanted or need to return, yes.

Without a doubt! And I'd have to do it twice to be honest. One last hour with these two people would be worth the trade! If only it were doable!

That's a tough one. The last person I had die was my mum and she was desperately sick at the end, so if she came back in the same way I'd say no, but if she could come back in perfect health then I'd gladly give up one year to spend that one hour with her.

The last person that I knew really well that passed away was my friend Tori who was killed by a drunk driver last year on her way back to school. I would definately give up a year of my life so that her family and my family could be with her once more. If she was asked this same question I know she would have the same answer I do.

Yeah I would. My grandmother passed away recently and I'd give her four years of mine, just so she could see my son progress further. ~Joey
