If You Could Change One Thing In The World...

Fri Dec 02, 2005 9:28 am

...what would it be?

I would make people want to stand out by excellence as opposed to putting down others.

No murders, no assaults, no authority by suppression, just competition and decency. I know it's an idealistic dream, but that's what this thread is about.

So what about your wishful dreams?

Thank you and good night.

I would make myself all powerful then correct all the problems I see in the world according the manner I deem appropriate.

I would use this power beneficially toward all man....except the ones that irritate me and I would make them all street sweepers in Paris, Hong Kong and the Ringling Bros, Barnum and Bailey Circus.

There's nothing wrong with being poor. The difference between me and the rich guy is only that he has bigger bills for his stuff than I.
If you saw my previous post here...it had nothing to do with money, but rather pain.
Life is about more than the money....at least to me.

If there is one thing in the world I could change (I'm afriad I am going to be selfish and use it for myself), it would be to go back in time and start all over again with the past 6 years of my life.

Now... if I were not feeling selfish I would have gone with: removing all the negative feelings in the world (hate/jealousy/racism).

To somehow protect children from illness, hunger and injury, both mental and physical.

Maybe then the next generation will make things more bright for themselves and the rest of us still living and for those coming into the world.

John Lennon wrote about all those nice idealistic things ["Imagine", a.k.a. the One Communist World Song] and it cost him his life.



The one thing I would wish for has already been said: that stupidity be eliminated, and people be held accountable for their actions.

Interesting Thread so far...

I would like to change the way my girl thinks a womens place is in the kitchen.. and she's addoment its true because of the way her previous partner made her do everything.. I wish i could change it and stop her from doing everything while im at work.. she has a small child to look after while the other two are at school, i want to be able to wash the pots when i come home and cook tea.. and if i do.. i get beaten up (in a good way!!) and she gets real mardy with me and says its a womens place in the kitchen! ITS NOT!
