My Grown Up Christmas List

December 3, 2014


Last year I posted my grown up Christmas list.  I kept it light and somewhat humorous because that was where my thoughts led me.  This year, however, my list is very different.


I wish that no more parents have to bury their child over foolishness.


I wish for an end to bigotry, intolerance, ignorance, and hatred.


I wish corporations would value people over profits.


I wish suicide bombings were something we only read about in history books.


I wish there were no toy guns.


I wish the village actually took responsibility for raising its children.


I wish soldiers died of old age instead of before their twenty-fifth birthdays.


I wish beauty was in the eye of the beholder.


I wish it wasn’t okay to profit on the misery of others.


I wish cancer was a thing of the past.


I wish people treated each other as well as they do their animals.


I wish politicians were paid minimum wage.


I wish people used their genius for good.


I wish farmers were paid to produce good, nutritious food instead of getting paid not to farm.


I wish sex wasn’t confused for love.


I wish there were no more baby daddies or baby mommas, just loving and dedicated parents.


And like last year, I wish for the spirit of Christmas to last throughout the year.
