Ice breakers, conversation starters, the tough questions that make you think. If you could only listen to one CD for the rest of your life, what would it be? We want to know! Come check out the Prairie State College Library’s Blackboard Discussion, which is, well, literally on a blackboard. One thought provoking, soul-searching question will be “posted” each week, giving you seven days to weigh-in.
There were some great responses to last week’s question, “If you could meet one person, living or dead, who would it be?” Here are a few of my favorites: Martin Luther King Jr., King Tut, Jesus, Michael Jackson, and Chuck Norris. Perhaps the last answer calls for another board entitled, “What’s your favorite Chuck Norris joke?”
If I could meet just one person, it would be Helen Keller. After losing both her hearing and sight to illness during infancy, Keller was trapped in silent darkness. With the help of her teacher, Anne Sullivan, Keller learned to read and write, and went on to become an acclaimed author, lecturer, and advocate for the disabled. Her autobiography, The Story of My Life, is available here at the library.
