    Hi Hubbers!

      If you could turn back time(any range of time 10 years, 100 years etc), what would be that one thing you would change!! Would you change something personal or something about the world?

      Your replies will contribute alot to my new hub. So do let me know what you would change!

        All relationships teach us something, you needed to go through the hard times to be in the good times.       I would not change the past ill work on the future.

    You mean turn back time in our life or turn back time 100's of years and stop wars etc?

    The thing i'd change I can't say because it's too personal but i'd change the way me and my ex broke up and why she doesn't talk to me for no reason!

    If I could go back 100's of years i'd stop all the Jews getting killed

    Why waste time with such a thing when you really CAN change things in the other direction?

    I wouldn't change a thing..well maybe what tex just said..although I did just hear a "new" skynrd song the other day..there's still gus..but really, Life is what it is, its now that happens, so, learn from mistakes and move on.
    You would never really know true hapiness if you had never felt pain..and sometimes, your pain can help someone else.

    I would go back 40 years and warn my dad to stop smoking, eat healthier and lose weight.  Then maybe he would still be with me today.

    If you did all the right things then there is nothing to change because other people have to do the right thing and only they could change or do the right thing. Now say that 5 times really fast!
