Dear Santa,
I wish for world peace
I wish that just once I could turn on the news and learn that not a single man or woman had been killed
I wish there was no more wars
I wish there was no more countries for there was no need to be divided
I wish every one was truly equal
I wish that I would want for nothing more than the happiness of my friends, family, and enemies
I wish that every one had the same luxuries of a house, family, and food that I do
I wish that no one would be judged for their sex, skin color, interests, or sexuality bubt by the amount of goodness in their hearts
I wish I didn’t have to wish for any of these things
I wish I wish I wish
I’ve rubbed every genies lamp
And prayed on every shooting star
I’ve searched and searched for that four leaf clover
And what have I got so far
I know its childish to be asking Santa but
At this point
I'm getting desperate
I would do anything to just make one of these wishes come true
Though I doubt I will ever see that
But that’s why I'm writing to you

I got inspired by seeing all those shootings on the news and the song “Imagine” by the Beatles. My heart goes out to all those lost and all those who have lost family to the shootings. Nothing is ever worth the cost of a life.
