WHAT DO YOU WANT!!!!!!!?

During my elementary school years a teacher of ours attended a groundbreaking conference. She learned some skills that got us in touch with reality and also brought us much closer to others as well as to our own selves.

We did things such as journaling, and writing our eulogies while under our desks in the dark by the candle light.

One experience that stuck in my brain was a day when we chose partners. We paired up. We sat cross legged on the floor facing each other and we screamed at our dearest friends

WHAT DO YOU WANT!!!!!? WHAT DO YOU WANT!!!!!? WHAT DO YOU WANT!!!!!? 

We did this over and over and OVER for several minutes.
First we yelled at each other together. And then we yelled at each other separately. 

WHAT DO YOU WANT!!!!!!?

The first answers were things like
a new bike, lots of cash, candy, no homework, a basketball, a new dress, those brand new cool Jordans!!!

But after a while

the superficial answers ceased.

THINGS GOT REAL.

BEHIND THE MASK OF SUPERFICIALITY EVEN KIDS KNOW WHAT THEY WANT. 

THEY WANT THE SAME THINGS THAT EVERYBODY TRULY WANTS. 

WHAT DO YOU WANT?
