Wishes

I wish celebrities over 40 were allowed to grow old gracefully, instead of being pressured to starve themselves and inject toxins into their skin to try to look 25.

I wish children were encouraged to experiment and play under adult supervision more, instead of either running amok or being tied up in unexplained rules.

I wish atheism wasn’t against the law in Arkansas, that Christian charity could be extended to include non-Christians living in the Bible Belt.

What do you wish for?

  1. I wish that the human desire for reassuring belief didn’t supersede reality and critical thinking.

    I wish that reporters were less interested in portraying themselves as characters and delivering the news in a way to sway an emotional response from the viewer, and more invested in reporting facts.

    I wish for more dessert pie.
