What Do You Wish For All Of Mankind This Christmas?

Courier readers respond to one-sentence survey

The Daily Courier asked readers for their Christmas wishes to share with the community, and many responded.

In the 2011 movie, “The Christmas Wish,” a woman and her children are left homeless when her husband left with all their money. Though panned by the “Rotten Tomatoes” website, their story was heartwarming.

The mother got a job in a small town diner and discovered the kind locals who were on hand to help her through the difficult times.

So, what would you wish for Prescott-area residents? How about for all of mankind?

The Courier asked for readers’ one-sentence wish in this – call it an “informal” – survey. Dozens were received; we’re publishing a sampling here – many were the same.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas! Thank you, all.
