A Global Message of Peace from an 8-Year-Old Boy

My son turned 8 over the weekend. I, like most parents, will say he is a special kid. I won’t bore you with many details but these.

He just turned 8 this past Saturday. According to him, it’s a lot of responsibility.

A few weeks ago he broke his arm and this morning I was taking him to the doctor to get his cast removed (that made him happy).

On the way to the medical clinic the sun wasn’t exactly up yet and only one or two stars were still visible in the sky. He asked me, kind of timidly, if he could make a wish on the last star.

I was kind of taken aback, but Elliot being Elliot it wasn’t that surprising to me. So I said sure. Maybe I can help you figure out how to make it come true.

His wish was that he wanted all the people of the world to be as happy as he was right then, and he said he is so happy about his cast coming off he might smile all day, and the world needs that.

Gee world leadership, gee folks in DC of both political parties. Give it a shot. Stop calling each other names, stop the name calling, stop the yelling about who said what, who didn’t say what…Be happy. Do your job, and let America, and hopefully the world following our example, be a happy place again.
