Receive It.

If you could have one wish granted, what would it be and why? I would like to hear an answer that gives voice to your soul. Something that isn’t absent of depth. Something that you have dared to voice until now.

  1. >As a survivor of child abuse I think I morphed into this advocate for children's rights. Recently I was having lunch with one of mentees and we were talking about scary movies when he said, "sometimes I be having nightmares." So, I naturally replied then you need to stop watching them movies. He said, "no, I don't be dreaming about that, I dream about getting shot. That's why I stay in the house so much."As crazy as life in the hood was growing up I never feared for my life. I thought to myself, how unfair for the children of today.So, my wish would be that all children, regardless of their families socio-economic status, race, creed or color would have the opportunity to 1) be children (as those of a certain age knew childhood to be), and 2) be fearless on their road to adulthood.


  2. >Kind of hard to followJuan G's comment…Truthfully, I wish people who have been discriminated against would stop discriminating against others who find themselves in the same postion. As a young black woman, I have experienced discrimination for any combination of the three and I find myself championing the underdog because if it. I'm sick of people claiming exclusivity to oppression. Black, Jewish, female, Hispanic, Muslim, Gay… whatever.So, I guess I'm not looking for world peace, just world-understanding. That we connect with each other for our humanity, not for our insanity.


  3. >I'm almost ashamed to "voice" the blessing I'm praying to receive after reading the first two that are amazingly global.Mine is simply personal. I pray that I am blessed with a loving mate with whom I can bear children while my parents walk this earth and can witness the joy.


  4. >Forgot to state why I want such a blessing as mate & children while my parents live: I feel my parents (& ancestors) deserve to have one of their off-spring bring forth and raise children in the way that our Proud Ancestors taught. At least, I'd like the chance to try while my parents can experience it; then they can move onto the next level with some earthly peace of mind, I pray. But, I guess it's really in the hands of The Creator.


  5. >thank you for the opportunity, Rich!I'd have to say with absolute certainty that I wish that all of my past mistakes and indescretions be used as a tool to help others break the cycle of ignorance while at the same time be forgiven by those that I have wronged along the way!


  6. >Sheletha that IS funny – but I'm here to testify on the RELIEF that just spreads through your veins when u sign that last check! LOL!C'mon Sistah GirlyGirl – u can't leave us hanging like that! if u didn't know before – now u do = I am NOSEY! LOL!


  7. >I would like to have more time with my dad. He got sick in August '96 and in less than three months he was dead. We never knew he had cancer. I know more time knowing would have yielded the same results, but at least we would have known and just maybe I would have moved back to the city sooner and spent more time with him and told him more often that I loved him, admired him and was proud of him for being there for me for the first 28 years of my life.
