    If you could chat to one dead person from history, who would it be?

    If you could ask that person one question, what would it be?

      But is he really dead? Isn't he alive in heaven?

    Good Question, actually really difficult to pick just one person! I think Julius Caesar would be my choice for a chat. Just to see how his mind worked

    Two very interesting choices, could you be a bit more specific about what questions you would ask though...?

    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    I would ask him if he was afraid doing what he did, knowing someone may take his life.

    I would have to tweak you premise a bit, if I could ask any one person from history a question, first I would like them to have the knowledge of what we’ve become.  If not, then what’s the point of asking an old dead person something about their time for which we mostly know.
    If you’ll allow for this person to get an instant update, then I would like to ask the centurion what he thinks about having speared Jesus Christ.

    I expect I will be able to ask much more of Christ in due time.  thank you.

    Only one dead person? Probably my great grandmother. She was an awesome lady who passed about ten years ago. Never in my life have I met someone so driven, hard working or passionate about freedom and the rights of others.

    For sure I would want to talk to my Mother...She died when I was two and this way I would at least get a chance to know her a bit better.

    I would like to talk to John F. Kennedy.
    I would ask him "who in which secret organization put the hit on you?".

    Probably would have to be Minamoto no Yoshitsune. I'd ask him how long and how hard he trained to become the warrior he was known as.

    Princess Diana would be my choice, in relevance to the question asked.

    Emma Goldman and I'd ask her what made her voice her opinions in a time when women were told to be silent.

    Robin Williams... I want to know why he did himself in. He was such a great person and I just wish he stayed on this earth a little longer...
