I interrupt my Newport, Rhode Island series to bring you this (totally personal but perhaps important) musing…
- the brightest minds in America are engineering sports shoes, designing video games and drawing political-satire cartoons.
I wish the brightest minds in America would put their heads together to:
- provide an education which brings out the unique gifts inherent in each one of our precious children;
- fight hunger & homelessness;
- find gracious and compassionate words to create cross-everything understanding;
- and make it completely unacceptable to spout sarcastic, base-minded, mean-spirited rhetoric which fosters enmity.
So, what’s your wish to build a dream on?

I totally agree, Tracy, and can’t top your list! I was just in San Francisco where the wealth was obscene. But we’re all going to die, no matter how many toys we amass, so let’s help each other if we can.
I, too, believe that we ought to be helping each other. And wealth can become obscene…
I’d like to see more research for medical conditions. We can go to the moon but we really don’t know how the body works. So sad.
I second that motion, Kate!
So very well said, Tracy! Sadly, these days it sounds like utopia however, with all the partisan divisiveness that hampers the implementation of social policies (the continuing cuts to the public education system are just an example).
I’m with you, about funding education!
My dream is that we can all be able to look each other in the eye, worldwide. That entails living a decent and moral life, that we strive to be better for each other every day. And never give up on it.
The never giving up is the key for idealists–I’ve been knocked around and taken advantage of because I’ve been naive, thinking everyone’s goals for morality, decency, harmony must be the same as mine. And it tempted me to want to give up.
But I’m not giving up.
It’s hard sometimes not become a cynic…
I call myself a realist.
