When do you think that tradition is important, and when is it time for change?
I think tradition is important when it is the right thing to do. I do not believe in doing that which we feel unhappy about simply because it has been our tradition. For example: Your great, great grandfather was a fireman - your great grandfather was a fireman - your grandfather was a fireman - your father was a fireman. Now it is expected that you will follow family tradition & become a fireman. However; you want to be a cop! Well, now is the time for growth, change, and starting a new family tradition. You would probably have problems with your family at first, but eventually they will see you are a good cop and be proud of you for that. You must choose that which makes you happy, not that which pleases your family.

If you could travel back in time to meet one of your ancestors, WHO would it be and WHY?You could choose someone you have heard about with notoriety in the family legends (a bootlegger, a wealthy person, the first to immigrate, for example) or someone who could answer questions about that next...

Why do women change their last name when they get married?Some people give me a hard time because I kept my maiden name. I can't really think of more than one good reason to change my name, to show "family belonging". Other than that... do you know of any other good reasons?

I believe both have life threatening jobs. At times, such as 9-11, being a N.Y. Fireman was doomsday with your life in the balance. Then again when a Police Officer has to serve a warrant and the criminal opens fire with a shotgun that is dangerous as well.

You have only one day to step back into one period of history. What time would you go back to? Would you walk with the mighty dinosaurs, hear the vikings roar or would you go back to see your great, great grandfather as a boy?
