There’s a blog dedicated to that very subject created by Foster Huntington. Here’s a bit of what he says about his blog:“The Burning House” showcases photos and lists of the things people would take with them if their house was burning. The project is a little over a month old and so far has received over three hundred submissions!”

Here’s what his instructions are:
If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question. http://theburninghouse.com/
I stole this topic from my Friend Judy. What would I take?
- My Pets and their food
- My son’s Taylor Guitar
- My Medication
- Bagles and Diet Pepsi
- One family picture
- St. Terese Statue
- Debit card and money
- A picture of my Mother in her Mrs. Santa Claus outfit
- My drawer with all the important papers: passports, social security cards, vehicle titles and love letters from my husband.
- A blanket
What about you? What means the most to you? Would you leave empty-handed even if you had time to grab some things? In an instance that I couldn’t get anything but my pets, that would be it.
I am interested in what other people will say.
