47 Wishes for My 47th Birthday


I think I broke Facebook. I have had hundreds of birthday wishes posted and messaged to me already this morning. It’s a bit crazy! Every year I am amazed and overwhelmed by how many people actually take the time and acknowledge me with well wishes. Who could feel lonely?

Not me and on that note, I’d like to share my 47 wishes for my 47th birthday …

I wish ….

  1. … honest journalists would grow bigger balls
  2. … dishonest journalists would grow horns
  3. … activists actually got active
  4. … politicians started working for the People
  5. … the United States would stop bombing civilians
  6. … world peace was really the goal
  7. … no one would ever go hungry
  8. … no person would be ever homeless

  35. … no one ever hurt an animal outside of survival
  36. … social media would grow a conscience
  37. … everyone would try marijuana at least once
