I would like to invite these 3 for a dinner: 1. Pope John Paul II 2. Adolf Hitler 3. My Grandfather These 3 people are somewhat related to the experiences of World War. The young Karol Wojtyla (Pope Jone Paul II) experienced the holocaust that Adolf Hitler had on those Jews and Poles whereas my grandfather at his very young age experienced the bitterness of war. Maybe dear Pope John Paul II would ask why Adolf Hitler did what he did and probably discuss the issues of war while my grandpa will testify on what was the effect on his tender age. I would like to learn more about these 3 notable characters in my life and if that is possible, I will gladly serve dinner and sit down with them. And maybe after that I might have some answers on what really happened during the great world war. How bout you? Who would u invite to that dinner?

I would invite Enheduanna the High Priestess of the moon Goddess Nanna and daughter of the Sumerian King Sargon. She is the first named author in world history and wrote superb poems and hymns around about 2300 BCE. From her I could learn bout the birth of civilization in Mesopotamia. The second person I would invite would be Miriam of Magdala (Mary Magdalene) so I could learn first hand about Yeshua of Nazareth. If she wrote the Gospel of Mary or not does not matter she was quite obviously the most intelligent of the disciples and would be better able to give an accurate account of what went on than the men have. My third choice would be Hypatia of Alexandria. She was and amazing mathematician and philosopher whose career was cut short in 415 CE when she was torn to pieces by a mob of Christians. She could have, in my opinion, helped prevent the travesty that was the dark ages. These three women could have had an amazing influence on world history had they not been repressed by jealous (male) religious leaders.
