If they were alive today...

So I've been thinking... if certain famous people in history did not die a premature death and lived on a natural longevity... who do you think would change the world, if they were still alive today?

Here's are some of my thoughts (pls. excuse the commentaries):

John Lennon
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Kurt Cobain
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Dang it.. can't think free-handly...
someone help me out here pls.

Sorry to be a party pooper, but my main thought here is that if Kurt Cobain hadn't killed himself, he would not be deified like he is today and people would realize that he was not the amazing genius he is held up to be.

Just my two cents.

If MLK were still alive, we wouldn't have to put up with Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton.

If Lennon were still alive, we'd still have to put up with Yoko.

Jonathan Larson- the composer of Rent. If he hadn't died so tragically, I think he would have changed the face of musical theater in the same way that Sondheim did.

My grandfather. He wasn't famous, and he never really did anything for the world. But we had a great relationship when I was young, and I would love to be able to talk to him about the things we couldn't when I was a little girl. He was a strong and wonderful man, and I would have loved to have heard his lectures on life, love and character.

I also would've liked to have met President Reagan. I know he's not deceased, but his personality is.

And Shakespeare, duh.
