Well Wishing Jan 28th. at 10:13:03 am UTC

Tiffany Royce (Tacoma, WA) Age: 20 - Email

Alright if I had three wishes.. Fist I would wish that we wouldn't have to live life as we do today. Second I would wish that the enviorment gets cleaned up by the people understanding how bad the situation really is, and last but not least, I would wish that I had a job!

1. For everyone to have more compassion towards each other. This would hopefully curb all of the power hungry people and their greediness that has caused a lot of destruction to our planet and to each other.

2. For every person that has a bigotry towards another or screwed over another walk in that person's shoes. e.g.: Pat Robertson would be a gay man OR woman, Jeb Bush would be a black Floridian voter, all the politicians & lobbyists would be the people they screwed over in their last election, obnoxious Christians would be Wiccans, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, and Aboriginal People, and finally George Dubya would be a mom who just sent her son to go to war.

3. After the above was done....That EVERYONE could read minds. Then maybe we would stop lying to each other. It would force us to start being more real and genuine in our thoughts & actions.

Do We Really Want To Do This? Jan 28th. at 1:48:49 pm UTC

Eldryn Moonsong (Ontario, Canada) Age: 30 - Email

Handing out wishes, especially 3 of them, to mere mortals might be considered miraculous by some, and foolhardy by others. Having read some of the earlier posts, I think that point has been demonstrated well enough, so I'll not go into it further. If a higher entity were to up and grant me three wishes with no catch, I suppose I'd wish for:

1) The wisdom to become a great leader who could unite the world's nations (and religions!) in peace. I would not simply wish for peace, because the manipulation of others' thoughts and feelings is just wrong.

2) The wisdom to take the human race beyond the need for money, in order to end greed and maintain peace.

3) A lifespan long enough to accomplish the other two wishes.

Bright blessings to all!


If I Had 3 Wishes... Jan 28th. at 2:03:54 pm UTC

sarah (Port Clinton) Age: 13 - Email

If I had 3 wishes I would have to do a lot of thinking. First off I'd probably wish for 2 Million dollors for mom and me. Hmmm, let's see. Secondly I might wish to find my true power from the Great Mother and Father. and 3rd? Well, Third off I would probably wish that when I need something I can find it when I need it. In the 15 minutes I've sat here, that's the best I could think of.

I Would Wish... Jan 28th. at 2:47:57 pm UTC

Lil devil (England) Age: 18 - Email

Firstly i would wish for everyone to be equal and noone was better-off than anyone else - ever.
Next i would wish that the world was captured in eternal tranquility and the seasons never changed, but it was always like the greek dusks, but also that this would never affect plants, animals, humans ect.
Thirdly i would wish that every time a child wishes upon a shooting star, that wish would come true.

Hugh (Indiana) Age: 19 - Email

If I had 3 wishes they would be simple
1. I would wish for my mom to be healed of her kidney disease
2. I would wish to be financially stable enough so that I could support myself, my spouse(when I find her), and my mother.
3. I would wish that everyone, everywhere, would take better care of the environment

I don't think those are too selfish, do you?

I Wish Apon A Star... Jan 28th. at 4:08:12 pm UTC
