Opinions

It’s been a little over six years now since my friend Louise Morgan died. When we met 22 years ago, she was the age I will turn next month. Just a couple of adjectives which accurately describe Louise back then were “abrupt” and “cranky.” She had strong opinions which she offered unsolicited at times, however, on the occasion you dared asked for hers, you best be prepared to take what she dished out. Louise was brutally honest but encountering her during the middle age of my life, I thought she was brutally rude!

People are born, they grow up, get older, and pass away all the time. It’s the human condition. But every now and then someone comes along who does more and gives more than the average person. Maybe one person in a thousand has the ability to inspire, to lead, and to challenge others on such a grand scale. James Evans was one of those precious few. We only get a small handful of souls in our lives who can lead by example like this and make such an everlasting impact on everyone around them, but he did it – and he did it so remarkably well.

I have one of those “significant” birthdays coming up next month so I decided that as I move closer to my -30 -, the journalist’s way of saying “the end,” I should be preparing for the ultimate interview of my writing career – questions I want to ask God. You know - who, what, when, where, how and why? While I’m keeping my most personal questions to myself, I thought I’d share a few which have puzzled me or have been a topic of conversation sometime during my lifetime.
