Wednesday Wickedness: Chelsea Clinton

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness. We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a famous person and pick ten of their quotes. Each of our questions will be based on the quotes. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Chelsea Clinton. Here's Wednesday Wickedness!

1. “I think with our problems with hopelessness and cynicism that [the solution] ultimately has to come from the young people themselves. We've got to realize we are the future and we make of our future what we make of it, and ultimately we have to do it for ourselves.” If you had a wish for your future, what would it be? **I simply wish to serve my purpose, in this world, that is to make a difference in the lives of the people I care for and in the lives of every person I've met.

2. “We proved we could be safe and secure at home, and still have more allies and friends in the world.” Tell us about a couple of your closest friends. **I only got few closest friends. I got one here who's my confidante, one who left early this morning bound for KSA to serve her next contract, the other one is based in Mongolia and one in Manila - both of whom I sooo missed and haven't seen for many years.

3. “I had seen people who had lost everything and everyone they loved to war, famine, and natural disasters.” What is the most that you have ever lost? **That once beautiful friendship I thought I could treasure forever, the friendship I once built with WL.

4. “We grieve for the loss of life, ... I ask you to redouble your resolve and help your neighbors.” What was the last thing that you have done to help a neighbor? **As far as I can remember, our neighbor's daughter was admitted to the ward I had been assigned to & and I gave her a bottle of a very important emergency drug so her life could be saved.

5. “I think they were interested in it.” What have you done to help someone because of a shared interest? **I listened and we prayed together.

6. “How we use these surpluses in this moment of prosperity will determine America's future for decades to come. Nothing will more surely determine it than making the right choices…” What do you think the priorities of the United States really should be? ** I bet it should be an improvement in their health care system.

7. “For all the tornadoes Arkansas has, and the ones that have hit around Little Rock, we never had one just basically come down Main Street.” What was the last severe weather situation that you and your neighbors endured? **So far, we only got to experience heavy rains and we're all locked up in our houses. So thankful we never get to experience tornadoes, hurricanes, etc.

8. “I had seen people who had lost everything and everyone they loved to war, famine, and natural disasters.” Who among the folks you consider family or friends has lost the most? **A colleague who lost his girlfriend, but he's able to move on now.

9. “I Do.” If you’ve been married what you’re your thoughts when you said that? Or if not, what would you hope them to be?” ** I hope it's being attached to fidelity and faithfulness to the love I shared with whoever that person is. LOL.

10. "I'm a big health-food freak and a vegetarian devotee." Have you or are you a vegetarian? Thoughts? **I don't think I am a vegetarian but I do eat veggies, bunch of them actually.
