My Grown Up Christmas List

Even when I was young, this song has always tugged at my heartstrings. As I got older, I added several more items to the list. You know, justice and peace, equitable distribution of wealth and resources, end to illiteracy, end to poverty, cure for cancer, stuff like that. When I became a parent, the list got longer, especially as I parent a special needs child. Funding for education and teacher and aide training, better school equipment, inclusion programs that really work, comprehensive medical coverage, parent assistance, community involvement and the list goes on.

I’m way past believing in Santa Claus (if I ever did). Still, there’s a part of me that wishes somehow…

What’s on your list?
