Prompt: If I Were in Charge of the World

If I were in charge of the world…

All people would be encouraged to spend one hour outside each day strolling in a park, in the woods, by a lake, a mountain stream or the ocean

All people would be encouraged to smile a lot, laugh more, and break into spontaneous song and dance

All people would be encouraged to speak to one another while passing, stop for impromptu chats, and eat communally at least once a week at local parks

If I were in charge of the world…

AK47s and all other forms of weapons that can kill lots of people very quickly would be banned

Boys and girls would be encouraged to laugh, sing, and cry whenever they felt like it as well as play in community treehouses all across their towns and cities

Teens would head off together to work outside for at least three months every year, working with farm animals, doing chores, and creating gardens so they could grow their own food

If I were in charge of the world…

People would share their customs freely with one another so we could learn from each other

And we’d all go out at night and sing a common song as we gazed at the full moon in celebration
