What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?

Empathetic, encouraging, friendly

If you had a time machine that only worked once what time in history would you visit and why?  

Back to 1776 at the birth of this nation - after surviving the horrors of the war against the British, the heroic leaders and soldiers immediately called upon God in prayer to give thanks for their victory and also to ask for His guidance as important governance decisions, documents, and freedoms were established. Their belief in God was unshakeable - there was no question in their minds that God had been in control (and remains so).

If you were to star in a cartoon (real or fictional) what would the name of the cartoon be?   

I like the positive and encouraging influences shared on Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, helping children and families in building "kinder and gentler" relationships, problem-solving, etc.
