Some Wishful Thinking

Posted in Opinion by yliza on April 28, 2008

I wish that we could have a real discussion of race in America.

I wish I could easily buy jeans and know that they weren’t made with sweatshop labor.

I wish Africans could benefit economically from the natural resources in their countries.

I wish the Rule of Law applied to all individuals in all countries, in spite of race, gender, religious affiliation (or lack thereof), or personal wealth.

I wish polar bear cubs weren’t drowning.

I wish my niece and nephew had the same opportunities I had.

This is just a short list, but this is where my head has been for the past week or so. I have visions of a better world, and I wish I knew how to make those visions come true.
