Two days ago, my sons and I dropped off three toys to St. Anthony's as they were having a Christmas celebration and giving out donated toys to tots with no wherewithall here in our own city. The boys already have a mountain of toys, and more under the tree from the steady stream incoming via UPS and the grandparents, etc...
So, I sit contemplating what would be nice to have, in reality, for christmas beyond superficial wishes such as those espoused by the President (incidentially, it doesn't seem necessary with over 30K Iraqis killed by our guns to point out the hypocrisy of his wishes, but I guess I just did - please do recognize that he is not wishing for peace but simply suggesting this is "a time of joy and peace"):
Good morning. On this Christmas Eve, Laura and I send our best wishes to families across America as you gather in your homes to celebrate the holiday. Christmas is a time of joy and peace, and we hope the holiday season brings all of you happy reunions with families and friends, and time to rest and reflect as you look forward to a new year.So, rather than type out a list of Christmas wishes - I thought it would be interesting and, okay I'll say it, nice to have folks leave one wish as a comment here.
So, let's call this Windspike's Merry Christmas Beyond the Superficial Wish List (sounds rather Seussian, no?). The challenge is to, if you could wish only one wish and have it granted, what wish would it be and do explain why. Perhaps the infinate karma of the blogisphere will make more than one come to fruition.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
