100 Days of Self Discovery Day 11 – Who Would You Like to Meet & Why?

It doesn’t specify if this person has to be alive or dead, so I’ve chosen two people; one alive and one dead.

I would love to meet David Attenborough. I have loved his documentaries for so long and, he just reminds me of my Grandad. I just want to give him a hug.

I think he has had such an amazing journey and I know he must have some extraordinary stories to tell. I have read his book ‘The Adventures of a Naturalist’ and, I have got the second one to read.

He just seems like such a caring and compassionate person and, I would love to know more about him.

It’s so difficult to choose one person who has passed away. I could choose Freddie Mercury, Queen Victoria, Nelson Mandela and so on. It feels like if you just choose one person, you’re neglecting all the other people you could choose.

I’ve chosen Winston Churchill. I have read dozens of books written about Churchill and, the books he wrote as well. I know some people find him quite controversial. However, I think it’s important to remember him in the context of the time that he was living.

He did a lot of good, as well as some bad. He actually fought in WW1 following the Gallipoli disaster. He helped pioneer the NHS. He was vocal against Hitler for years and, nobody took him seriously. He led Great Britain during WW2 and, his speeches riled the nation.

I would have loved to have watched him a write a speech, see him working and, how he relaxed. I think he was a formidable character and I would have liked to have seen him in his prime.
