My Birthday Wish List
By Aless Piper
August 19, 2011
As children we are taught that if we tell our birthday wish(es) it won't come true, but as an adult, I believe the opposite is true: If we don't tell our wishes they won't come true ... people aren't psychic after all. My birthday is in a few days, so with that in mind I want to share my wish list with all of you in hopes that you can help make some of my wishes come true:
I have a dream that one day I won't be lamenting where all the red ribbons have gone because AIDS will be a distant memory. I have a dream that one day there will be equality for LGBT persons all the way across the United States and Canada, and school children will need a dictionary to define homophobia for them, and the very idea of it will seem ludicrous.
According to Disney's Cinderella movie, a dream is a wish your heart makes. How about helping mine come true?
