Interview the Stanger

1. How do you feel about 9/11?

2. Do you feel that religion is important?

3. What goals/achievements are you looking forward to accomplish?

4. Years ago, a group of people wanted to pass a law stating " that no one could earn more than 1 million dollars." Do you think that would be fair?]

5. If you could change/improve something in the world, what would it be and why?


  1. it was a very bad thing that happened.
    yeah it is important
    i dont know yet to get a good job atleast
    yeah because there too rich
    make everybody have money and no poverty

  2. 1: I feel it was very tragic and it efected the whole world.
    2: Yes I think it is important.
    3. I want to be drafted into the nba.
    4: No, I dont think that would be fair to the people of tge United States.
    5: If I would change anything in the world I would make everyone rich.

  3. 1. I feel that 9/11 was a travesty, and the entire world will never forget it. I wish it never would of happened, but nothing will ever change the fact that it happened.
    2.Religon is a very important part of life. How can your life be complete without God? You will not have eternal life, you will have eternal death.
    3. I would like to graduate college, have a successful career,start a family, and change the world. Pretty basic things. Except the changing the world part.I want people to remember me as someone who made a difference in this world.
    4. I think it would be fair, because everyone would be together as one. There still would be poor and rich people per se, but it would be less significant.
    5. I would take away the wars, and nuclear weapons. Wars only occasionally resolve things,and nuclear weapons do nothing. We do not need those things in our lives, I'm not saying we have to get along one hundred percent of the time, but we can respect one another and certain world leaders need to grow up.. alot!

  4. 1 - 9/11 - Nine eleven. I can tell you the exact spot in my junior high when I found out. I was your age (abouts). Can you believe that? I've heard both sides worth of opinions. Yes, it's terrible to attack any country without being provoked. But at the same time, think and wonder. America bonded together like nothing I've ever seen. I had friends wishing so hard to be 18 so they could enlist and serve our lovely nation. People have lost that drive; they've come to see 9/11 as a tragedy, not a rose. Despite the ugly thorns of pain and blood, there's a beautiful flower at the end.

    2 - Religion - Yes. Yes I do. I'm Eastern Orthodox, of the Greek variety. Look it up, we're pretty! I was also in junior high about the time that I got really interested in church and the like. At the very least, church serves as a useful social tool to bring people together and invite community feelings. Create bonds between people.

    3 - Goals - Goals! Achievements! I get to graduate college in a year! Then I can start my big-kid job and move into a big-kid place and make big-kid money. My eventual life goal however? End it happily. Can't wait to see how it all plays out!

    4 - Fairness - mmm...This is interesting. No, I don't think it would be fair. But I am of a mindset that you keep what you earn and you share what you want. Now now, sharing is caring, but it is yours to do with as you please. Since you asked this question, there is a movie you may be interested in. It's called Sneakers and it came out in 1992. It's PG13 however and I don't know your age. Ask your parents to see if the library has it or to rent it. It's pretty good, ex convicts, current convicts, good guys, bad guys, high tech things. Mystery! Comedy! Adventure! The main philosophical point is your question. Congrats! You could be a movie writer!

    5 - Change - I'd make sure every single person in the world had a longer attention span. Too many short attention spans make for not enough obsessions in the world. Obessions are where we find our greatest discoveries.

  5. Stacie and Madison, you both gave me some really good answers. I might take the time to view that movie. :)

  6. 9/11 was a scary day. I could imagine it was like what people went through when Pearl Harbor was hit. The United States though is a country that helps everyone out. It brought people closer to each other and to God. Religion is very important. It is more important that anything else in our lives. Without it we would not have salvation or eternal life in heaven. I think that would be a great law that no one could make over a $1,000,000. People are too greedy. If I could change one thing in the world, it would be that people are not so self-centered, and they would think of others.
