Wishing Well

While prowling through old blogs, I found one that deserves a retread.  Everyone has impossible wishes. The things some big some small that we would change if we were playing God.  Most of mine from two years ago hold up very well.  Your mission should you choose to accept it is to add more wishes to the list.
1. Peter Allen would still be alive. He along with all those phenomenal talents, particularly those of stage and screen, who died too young before medical science started making it possible to "live with" AIDS. We lost a generation of unbelievable talent and I wish we had them all back.

2. The religions of the world would leave each other alone and in peace. My God, Your God. Who cares? Who has the best invisible friend? All the morals are basically the same and come down to "be good to each other". Why are you killing your fellow man?

3. Everyone could learn to giggle and have a good sense of rhythm. Being "tickled" by life is one of the essentials to a happy existence, and it's more fun if you can dance through it.

4. Politicians would actually care more for their constituents than they do for money, power and prestige.

5. Everyone should have at least one "Great Love". However it ends, the memories will carry your through the rest of your life.

6. The population of the world would be 3 billion people smaller tomorrow. Just go "poof" without the ugliness, pain, and anguish that is bound to come in the next 50 years.

7. In addition to the great love. Everyone would have one great "call in the middle of the night when things are rotten and you need a shoulder to cry on" friend. They would last for decades and would always think you are under 30.

8. No child would ever suffer just because the adults were behaving badly.

9. No adults would ever be fighting in front of the children or at war.

10. I would be young, beautiful, and independently wealthy (oh well they are impossible wishes).

Please add your thoughts.

These are all fantastic wishes up to and including #10!

#2 rather reminds of "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" as the moral of that movie was "Be excellent to each other." You can't ask for much more than that, can you?

A wish I would add is that everyone have enough of what they need - food, money, clothing, good health - so that the playing field was leveled and we could all live in harmony with each other not desiring what others have or even wishing that our children could go to bed not hungry or cold.

Looks like you and Linda have covered the bases very nicely. Thanks for the post, Jamie.
