I came across this very intriguing project by Boom Design Group where they asked fifty people in New Orleans one question: "What do you wish for by the end of today?"
The project aptly named fiftypeopleonequestion.com.
They took to the streets of New Orleans and beautifully shot one on one interviews with random people. Here is the video:

I felt the video did brilliantly in capturing the moment where everyday people are so busy with what is happening now that they haven't paused to think what do they wish for by the end of today. A simple question that caused reflection. Some responses were selfish, most wished to be millionaires, some wished world peace, some just wished to be happy and some wished more sex!
But what was fantastic was the question was so much more inspiring that it spread globally and the community responded with what they wished for. There is a sense that we all have problems and wish for the better.
I wish I could be free from worries and enjoy life with my wife Grace and watch my children grow.
What do you wish for by the end of today?
