doo (Baltimore, MD) Age: 45 - Email

1. For those who do not understand my religious beliefs, to try and look beyond the heresay and find out for themselves what it involves before condemning us. 2. Try to be more forgiving towards our government for their misguided ideals and actions. 3. Smile more, it makes people wonder what you're up to!!!!!

Three Wishes Feb 2nd. at 3:12:03 am EST

Randy (aka "Coises") (Chandler, Arizona (USA)) Age: 45 - Email - Web

1. That I might always perceive what is before me with the full clarity of my mind.
2. That I might always face what is before me with full strength of my will.
3. That I might always love what is before me with the full depth of my heart.

If I could do those three things consistently, I don't think I'd have to worry about much else. (Then again, once I got my first wish, maybe I'd change the other two really fast!)

My 3 Wishes Feb 2nd. at 4:25:07 am EST

If I was granted three wishes... I'd wish for:

1) A greater ability to think before I act.
2) More centering. :o)
3) A greater ability for unconditional love.

I'm a huge dork.

If Wishes Were Horses, We'd All Be Shoveling Manure Feb 2nd. at 1:54:43 pm EST

Trickster (Oceania) Age: 44 - Email - Web

Three wishes, eh? Well here goes...

(1) I wish people with good ideas and intents, ie Pagans, Libertarians, etc, could get their act together instead of constant bickering and pissing contests.
(2) I wish the "Founding Fathers" had included the Right of Bodily Sovreignity in the Bill of Rights. That is, your body belongs to you and you can do whatever you want with it. No more victimless crimes. No more drug war. No more nudity and prostitution laws. No more power over your most dear material possession.
(3) I wish people would actually give a sh*t instead of baa-baa-ing everything they hear.

My Three Wishes... Feb 2nd. at 2:26:37 pm EST

melanie favire (husband is stationed in germany) Age: 29 - Email

Wish #1 I would wish for all the people of the world to be able to understand each other. It is not enough to be able to speak a language...but you need to understand what is between the lines.
Wish #2 I wish that I could know without a doubt that there are higher spirital beings and what it is I am suppost to be doing with my life.
Wish #3 I would want a bed that travels just like in "Bednobs and Broomsticks". A very good film which actually shows witches in a positive light...

3 Wishes... Feb 2nd. at 7:21:36 pm EST

Demitria (florida) Age: 15 - Email

Ok my 3 wishes...

1) That my family accepted me for who I am
2) That pagans weren't thought of as evil satan worshipers
3) a million more wishes :D


My 3 Wishes! Feb 2nd. at 7:24:51 pm EST

TheGodSplinter (United Kingdom) Age: 46 - Email

My first wish would be that I will be able to make an infinite number of further wishes that must be granted. I would stipulate, of course that these must be written by me, on yellow paper, in dark green ink, in alternating capital and lower case letters, starting with either of those!

Call that a safety catch against wishing someone dead, one day, because he's reportedly killed or molested some children and may yet be innocent! (Etc..)

My own, personal wishes (Nos. 2 and 3) can wait for a while! (I'm sure that Catherine Zeta Jones will still be around, when I'm ready to wish on as strongly as I dream on!)

Besides, there's a planet to save and several sleeping branches of world religion to wake all of the way back up, first!


My Wishes Feb 2nd. at 8:01:09 pm EST

Blanca (texas usa) Age: 14 - Email

My first wish would be every woman in the world had to be beautiful inside and out. My second wish would be wealth. My third world peace no more war.

1.Peace 2.Love 3.Health world-wide!

Just Three?!? Feb 2nd. at 8:30:04 pm EST

jodie (canada) Age: 30 - Email

Ok, I can think of a tonne, but I'll try to control myself. I wish that all human beings, be they from the first world or third world be seen as equal, that respect for all the peoples of the world become the basis for decision-making. That the well being of the earth becomes a priority. And, finally that education, in all its forms, become freely available to anyone who wants it.
