Give one or two examples of why or how. Pictures are welcome.

If you could be any other object other than a human what would it be?

Why?
You got my answer in that text the other day but I suppose I can post it here as well.

What's the purpose of life?

IMO the purpose of life is love, family, and the pursuit of happiness. When I say love I don't mean a silly high school crush or a young kid that thinks he's in love, I mean real love. The kind where you would die to protect the other person. This in part ties into family, it's the kind of love usually reserved for family members though for me at least it also extends to some of my brothers I served with.

When I say family I of course include the family I was born into but mostly I'm referencing my family, the family I helped create through love, marriage, and fathering my two children. My kids truly saved my life and changed my world. I have no doubts that had they not come into my life I very likely wouldn't be here today. They gave me something new to fight for and a reason to keep waking up every day. I never in my wildest dreams thought I could love anything so much.

The pursuit of happiness, this is what I believe we are all striving for. Happiness means something different for everyone. Many people will never achieve it because they don't truly know what happiness is. The truly blessed will find it early and hold onto it for all of their years.

Many people believe "he who dies with the most toys wins" I do not. You can't take any of that crap with you. I believe what matters most and what defines us is our legacy. This to me ties back into my views on the purpose of life. IMO what matters is not the accumulation of wealth and material possessions but our impact on the world around us and the mark we leave on the people whose paths we cross in our short lifetime.

Damn John, you had to go and answer him. If we don't acknowledge his existence, he won't be real!
