Wishes

I wished for peace on Earth, but I was naive and didn’t know it could never happen. I was 8 years old, and I wished for peace on Earth in 1958. A kids dream. I didn’t know then that because of the nature of man and men, it cannot happen. But still I wished.

I wished when I graduated from High School in 1968, that I could do something to change the world for the good.

I wished for health and happiness for my children when they were born.

I wished several times to win the lottery.

I wished and wished.

Some things happened, not simply because I wished, but because I cared enough to become involved in the things I wished for in order to make them happen.

“If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride….”

Finally, “Be careful what you wish for, because you might just get it”.
