Last night my son, a joyous three year old, got to make a wish form the Make a Wish Foundation. We were nominated by a fellow church goer and he was so happy.

He wished to meet the creators of his favorite movie, Cars 2. He wants to go to Pixar and meet the guy who made Miguel Camino, his favorite character from the movie.

I think joy, wonder and love make life at its highest. I just needed to share.

What a fantastic wish. My 4 and 2 year olds love Cars. Anytime my 2 year old sees McQueen he yells out "Neen!" (for lightning), and anytime he sees Mater/Finn he yells "Hi-Yah!" (because we have a book that has them doing karate as spy cars).

Tito- pardon my ignorance, but I wasn't aware your son was ill. I think the Make a Wish foundation is everything that is right with America, and I'm so happy he was able to make his. Your family will be in my prayers.

No worries. Life moves so fast. my son has an incurable disease. He was also the guild School poster child. He has been so blessed through all of his trials.

Here is his commercial explaining his trials. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UE1dCJzmcOY)

God bless you and your family. There aren't many people who know what you are going through, and I know that makes it more difficult. Our daughter was diagnosed during our 20 week ultrasound with a "incompatible with life" disorder. She died the day she was born.

You have a beautiful family, and I hope he has the greatest trip in the world.

Sidenote: If I were wanting to donate some money, would donating to the Guild School (https://npo.networkforgood.org/Donate/Donate.aspx?npoSubscriptionId=7166&checkTime=%5Btype+Function%5D&my%5Fnc=%5Bobject+Object%5D&my%5Fns=%5Bobject+Object%5D&time%5Finterval=1&DUR=9%2E609&MY%5FDUR=9%2E609&monthly=%5Btype+Function%5D&comm=%5Btype+Function)be the appropriate recepient?

I am so sorry for your loss. I don't know how you must feel. So many times we forget we are humans trying to live the best we can, That is the most important aspect.

Yes, Guild School is great. They are my heroes for what they do everyday for a great group of kids.

Words escape me, tito. I can't imagine the challenges your family has had to endure.

My family and my students will be praying for you all.

I go by Tito (as does my son and my uncle and an other cousin) it sort of a Spanish version of Junior. We all have the name of my Grandfather.

Poet because I am a poet.

Not very original, I know.

God bless all of you Titos.

I think it is great that this thread was moved from the Crosby Center to here, where more people can see it. Looking forward to the update and hearing if Lightning McQueen is as fast as they say he is.

I'm so sorry for your loss, GA. It must have been such a horrible time for you and your family. God Bless you too.

I attended the annual Guild school fund raising breakfast a week ago. Amazing program & staff, amazing parents and children. Tons of support & need for all these beautiful people.

I just made a modest donation to the Guild School. Please join me.

I like to offer minority opinions fueled by very expensive alcoholic beverages and silly thoughts.

I respect and honor those of you who are dealing with real-world stuff.

Basketball is a mindless diversion for those who have no more important issues to deal with in their lives.

Go Bulldogs!
