"Think about your own life experiences and in particular think over the important things in your life that you have learned. Write a brief letter to a future generation or person about yourself and what is important to you in terms of living 'a good life'.My Dearest Family and Future Generation,Whilst writing this letter to you means having to face my own mortality, thankfully I will be dead when you read it and thus saved from any embarrassment. I simply wanted you to briefly know who I was and what was important to me in life. My friends would probably tell you that for me family comes first, however I would not be the mother, daughter, lover or friend I was today without incredi ...view middle of the document...

Money is certainly not everything, but as I have grown older I realise that having a little of it does help and it is only greed which you need to watch out for. You must also never forget those less fortunate than you, give back to the community you live in and tread lightly on mother earth, not as those before you. Protect and sustain the planet and teach respect for her so that your own grandchildren and each generation thereafter can enjoy life upon her as we have.Make time for your friends, they are truly one of life's most wonderful gifts. Good friends will never judge you, but will be honest and upfront when you chose the wrong outfit or boyfriend. They will laugh and cry when you do and always look out for you when you have drunk too many glasses of red wine. A good friendship will last a life time but beware of those who only pretend to be your friend, for it is better to have no friends at all.In life, my dear ones you do not need to follow religion or have belief in any one faith, but keep an open heart and an even broader mind and always remember that at the heart of any spiritual faith there should be kindness.Finally, living a 'good' life would never be complete without finding your own place of peace. Not a 'walk on the beach' kind of peace, but an inner peace, that in my experience is often only found towards the end of life's often tedious journey. I have obviously at some stage in my life found mine, or indeed I would not be speaking to you of such. I imagine writing this letter would not have been possible nor honest without having found some kind of inner peace and understanding of the self.Wherever you travel my dearest family and future generation, know in your hearts that I too will be there to walk beside you.Love always,Great-GrandmotherActivity TwoI am assuming from the scenario I am childless and possibly desperate to become a parent. Presented with the adoption choices suggested in the scenario I would personally consider adopting any one of the children described and would have no problem welcoming them into the family. I have no prejudice against other races and a mixed race baby would be accepted regardless of colour or creed just as the baby who is delayed developmentally or the offspring of someone who is HIV positive. I would be equally sympathetic to the baby of a heroin addict and possibly more so for the child with congenital deformities. I would be curious about the toddler survivor of the murder suicide and would only baulk at adoption of this child and the hyperactive three year old due to their age, taking into consideration that they have already experienced and known other mothers. As I did not bear any of these children myself, I am not at fault for their problems, therefore would feel no blame or guilt associated with rearing any of these children. My caring and humanitarian nature would probably see me adopting these particular children as being a positive personal challenge and my own contribut...
