An art store in my town posted a black chalkboard on the side of their building. Scrawled across the chalkboard is one simple question: What do you want to do before you die? Then it leaves a blank space for people to fill in their answers.
Some responses are silly.
“Before I die I want to breed squirrels.”
Some are so sincere they make you want to cry.
“Before I die I want to love someone with all my heart.”
Some speak to the very core of our being.
“Before I die I want to realize my potential.”
So, I ask you, what do you want to do before you die? Is it something you would write on a wall?
