I would bring back my friends son, he recently passed away at age five from drowning. So trajic, I wish It never happened and it could be taken back.

Wow TheHaight. Sorry for the loss. How is the friend doing?

TheHaight's avatar

Thanks. She’s not doing good at all, but when she is occupied with her job, etc she’s fine. I couldn’t imagine going through what she has but she’s so strong

As we all know time heals most wounds.

@At: some wounds never heal; the scar tissue thickens but the loss remains to weigh the heart down.

Bob Marley , because he’s the only one that made me understand this world after Jesus.

I’d bring back my grandfather, but I am afraid that all of the changes in this world would give him a heart attack!

My stepson. But… he sent me a dream after he died, in which we were in a place I didn’t like – it was kind of craggy and austere. I said, let’s get out of here! and he laughed at me and said
Don’t you get it? This is what I wanted.

I’m going with Ghandi. At present, The world is in great need of a strong, effective leader; a leader who understands the value of harmony and peace, of acceptance and humility, and realizes that force and aggression cannot sway the hearts and minds of people.

For personal reasons, my Grandmother. There is so much I wanted to ask her, so much I could have learned from her. I miss her still, long after her death. For the world as a whole, I’m with Tiny: Ghandi.

sorry, i couldn’t resist correcting you guys since you misspelled his name consecutively. It’s “Gandhi” :)

My Papa (not the father kind, the great-grandpa kind). He was an amazing man – never got mad at anyone and had a genuinely kind heart. He would give you the shirt off his back (literally) if you needed it. Anyway.. I miss him very much.

TheHaight's avatar

@allie: aw, the way you described him reminds me of my papa as well! And I also call him papa, but he’s my grandpa. I’m sorry for your loss, mines still here and I spend as much time with him as I can. ;)

augustlan's avatar

at PnL: Thanks

tinyfaery's avatar

Oops. But I can always count on a fellow flutherite to point out my mistakes and short comings. Hey, I can spell Nietzsche correctly. :)

augustlan's avatar

@tiny: You’re quite a bit ahead of me, then!

tiny, i meant it in the nicest way possible

The founding fathers so they could clarify the constitution and publicly state (again) that this is not a country founded on religion.

Knotmyday's avatar

I’m having a philosophical problem with this question, bear with: What if they didn’t want to come back, and were brought here against their will? Would saying “sorry” help?
What would they tell us about the “other side”? Frankly, I don’t want to know. “For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come, must give us pause…”
I have family and friends that I miss horribly, that I miss like they were a piece of my soul torn out; but I would never wish them to come back. I just wish they’d stayed. I don’t know.

@ allie and haight I want my Papa back too he died this past November. He sounds like your Papa I miss him so much. I visit his grave often and talk to him. Every time I go I cry I don’t think it will ever stop.

marinelife's avatar

@kmt You raise totally valid points. I was thinking of this question as more esoteric than actual.

In that spirit, Martin Luther King. We could use his vision.

TheHaight's avatar

@gooch, I am so sorry for your loss. I would be the same way too, and just thinking about it makes me tear up. There’s just something about our Papas! Hard working, gentle men. ♥

Allie's avatar

gooch: I go visit my Papa, too. I tell him everything that’s going on. It makes me feel better and, in some odd way, still connected to him. What am I saying? That’s not odd. I’ll always be connected to him. Always.

my friends mom because no one deserves to lose both parents tradegically without having a true parent to lean on when times are tough. I miss her.

I try my best to be there for my friend.

I’d bring back EVERYONE whose death was “unjustified,” such as those who went too soon, were just “too nice,” who died due to a tragic accident; in other words, I’d want to bring back everyone whose death was just “not right.”
