Have you ever tried to put 97 candles on a cake? You can't. So I put 10 candles to represent the 10 decades of my life. Here are my birthday wishes:

A world where weapons, big and small, are symbols of weakness, not strength
A world where religion informs values, not governments
A world where the air is breathable, the water drinkable and the food is healthy and plentiful
A world where poor people are the smallest percentage of the population
A world where education and health care are available to everyone
A world where prejudice based on race, religion and nationality is non-existent
A world where smoking tobacco is considered a ridiculous practice from a bygone era
A world where all diseases are curable and physical pain is no longer a part of life
A world where we control technology, not the other way around
A world where greed is never considered good

Excuse me -- I have a lot of candles to blow out. Kirk Douglas

Happy Birthday, Kirk.

If I live to be 97, I hope I have enough breath in me to blow out the candles, too.
