nothing.

WHat right do i have to chance or meddle with history, what of the untold the consequences it might cause....

This question reminds me of an episode of the Twilight Zone where a woman is sent back in time to kill Hitler as a baby. Hired as  servant of the Hitler family, she eventually runs off with the child unknownst to the family and drowns both herself and the baby in a river. Another servant covers up the incident from the Hilter family by stealing the infant of a homeless woman and putting it in the crib in place of the orginal child.

I would love to see an end to famine and the crippling and exploitation of the third world and an end to war. But that would involve rewriting a large part of history, changing the very foundations of capitalism and altering political structures.

I couldn't word it better, at the moment, then Brian just did. I stand by his answer.

So if you were granted that supernatural power, you would not use a minute of it that could save many lives if used wisely?
