If you could have a drink with anyone from the past or the present someone you know or someone famous who would it be and why? If I could have a drink with anyone in the world it would be Anderson Cooper. He is the son of Gloria Vanderbilt and grew up in the world of fashion modeling for her adds. He attended Yale and majored in political science. Despite no formal journalism education he went on and worked for prestigious news sites, on CNN, 60 minutes, and even hosting a syndicated day time talk show. He’s been in war zones, interviewed presidential candidates, and even interviewed Eminem. He was on assignment on 9-11, in Libya during the uprising, and in Time Square every new years eve. If I could meet anyone and only have enough time to enjoy a mocha iced coffee it would be him. I’d ask him about his life, about his experiences, and the things he has seen. I’d ask him how he broke into a tough a business and chose a career where he looks tragedy in the face every day. I’d ask him if is jaded, if he’s become cynical and if he can still assume the good in most people. And most of all for the measly 25 minutes our encounter may last, I’d ask him what he could pass on to me. What secret he has that is worth passing on to the next generation.
