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”.
