Students and faculty at Ida Burns Elementary School are making Christmas wishes.
But you won't find any toys or video games listed here.
Each member of the Ida Burns "family" placed a special wish on their "wishing tree" this year. The wishes could be anything...except they couldn't cost money.
"With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, sometimes it's easy to lose our focus, so this is a powerful reminder of what's important." says Nicole Loftis, Instructional Facilitator at Ida Burns Elementary.
Many of the wishes were very emotional, and included "a cure for breast cancer" and "my mom and dad wouldn't get angry any more."
Ida Burns Principal Cindy Thacker says she is grateful for the visible reminder of Christmas blessings.
"This wall will make you have a reality check with your life and realize how lucky you are. We have so much to be thankful for."
"If only Santa could grant these wishes," says Loftis, "Our world would be a better place!"
