From Mike: Questions modified and revised from the class. Steal as you wish.

    --How is your life different than as you thought it would be like as a young adult?  In other words, has your vision for your life and future changed significantly?
--What knowledge would you like to pass on the others?  If you had one piece of advice to give someone my age, what would it be?
--Do you have an object or item that you have had for many years that means a lot to you?  Which possession of this type is most valuable to you?
--How do you view yourself as a person? What do you feel are your most important duties and obligations in life?
--If you could communicate with people using other methods, what would be your preferred method and why would you use that form of communication?
--Have you ever found yourself in an ethical dilemma, and what did you learn from this experience?
--Who is or was the most influential person in your life, whom you had always looked up to throughout your life?
--What was the most significant epiphany or turning point that you’ve had in your life?  Would you mind sharing what that meant to you?
--What motivates you the most in life?
--Would you describe your “perfect” day?
--Do you think people are born with a purpose or a destiny, or do we need to discover it through others?  ----What has led you to hold this opinion?
--How have your dreams and goals for yourself changed?
--Who is the most visionary person that you know, and how does this person inspire you?

--What would you like your legacy to be, or what do you want to leave before you die for future generations?

--How has the American Dream changed in your lifetime, and what is the American Dream, in your eyes?
--Do you see eccentricity as a positive or negative trait?  Why?
--Like Prophet Blackman, who had a vision in one of the readings we did, do you think God sent you here for a specific reason(s)? If so, what is it/are they and why?
--When reading one essay about Moreese Bickman we learned about how evident racism really is in history, and in his case it led to an unjust imprisonment for many years.  Do you think much has changed or do you believe many people are still racist towards others?  Why?
--I read about Tommie Bass a Folk Doctor who uses herbs to heal people. I was wondering if you believe in herbs medicine or natural or alternative methods of medicine.
--We have learned about some of the shortcomings of our current food systems and the tie this has to poor health outcomes.  What have you learned about food and proper eating or nutrition in your experience?  Do you have any tips that might help others?
