That my family be my eternal refuge, making me feel emotions deeper than I could imagined. That sweet memories of my childhood with my dad, be my unceasing comfort. That sustainable development be effective and let my little niece enjoy the benefits of Mother Nature. That spring be flowery and fragrant, heavy leaves fall in autumn, that winter be a beneficial exercise for reflection, and summer, a great festival of the sun.
That tyrants fall from power. The gangsters don’t remain unpunished. Parents who lost their children find a new reason to live. That orphans have a home. That the elderly are only explored in his great wisdom. That pedophiles receive condemnation. That lives are not taken by a proud ambition to sovereignty. That homeless receive shelter, prostitutes love, the lepers healing and wounded soul interior peace. That protests are heard and not suppressed. That civil wars don’t kill more of my African brothers.
That the years gift us with wise hearts and bring us to a deeper level of intimacy with those we love. That religious intolerance makes no more deaths. That suicide bombers don’t use the name of God to bring tragedy. That we satiate those who hunger and thirst for justice. That broken hearts are mended, those who cheat will turn to truth and the merciless to mercy. That black people are respected in all fields. That sporting events will serve not only for entertainment but also as a real opportunity to unite people. That the jealous learn to love, the intolerant to listen and the disobedient to obey. That peace, love and brotherhood be globalized. That all children stop working and have worthy childhood memories. That the political decrease in hypocrisy and grow in truth and humanity. That rain be common in drylands, the hungry be fed, the miserable prosperous and the sick healed.
That the cries of those calling for peace to become a beautiful symphony, sung around the world, in the alive hope that those who have their hands full of blood are involved in this gentle melody and turn to regret.
As it says Almudena Grandes, from wich I have copied the idea for this article: " That efforts are worth to receive some reward, even if only a smile". And that I, can live my youth and old age in a more fraternal world, of mercy and grace. Until the end of my existence at the beginning of eternity.
Come the new year!
