Actually, if I could invite anyone, I'd invite the biological parents I have never met. Several years ago I tried to track them down without success. If they are still alive, I'm certain I am running out of time.

Oh...that touched me. Do you get to see the excellent UK programme "Long Lost Family"? (It deservedly won a Bafta). It reunites members of family with another member of the family, e.g. a mother they never met because they were adopted etc. when their search reached a dead end. It is emotional and healing (always ends with the presenters detailing how they track them down successfully). It is available on youtube....just in case it appeals and would interest you rather than be too painful. Perhaps the programme will help provide clues to enable a better search...

I was under the impression that the OP meant us to choose a famous or historical person.

"If you could invite anyone you admire (living or dead) to dinner, who would it be and why?
(Not necessarily on the same night!)"

Does not specify a celebrity or historical figure.Only someone we admire.

Ah sorry I missed that - since her post was not quoted in your post.

Really this thread can incorporate whatever feels right. It's not hard and fast... it's just a game.
I guess I took it for granted that we would obviously want to see our loved ones that have departed.
Hence I was aiming for others that we admired but I don't mind whatever form feels right for the person.

Yes I did...it didn't occur to me that some may invite their loved and departed ones since I obviously took it for granted that they would take priority.

My fault for not clarifying it. That said, it's just a game...
