I just read about the world's oldest person (116). Wouldn't it be great to speak with her?
Her name is Bessie Cooper. She was born on August 26, 1896. Just think of all she has witnessed.
Some of the things that come to mind are (in no particular order);
The first Model-T automobile.
The Wright brothers inventing and building the world's first successful airplane and making the first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight.
The Titanic sinking.
The first great depression.
The Roaring 20's.
Many great Presidents.
Unfortunately many wars.
Man walking on the moon, spaceships and other things space related.
There have been 5 states added.
Many advances in medicine and science.
There are many more things that have happened since she was born. She is living history.
