World of My Dreams

World of My Dreams by Priti Kandlur (a Short Story Contest entry)


“Mom, did you hear the news about the school shooting?”

My heart skipped a beat & I hugged my young, scared child. I prayed for all those who lost their loved one. I prayed for the world of my dreams, where there is no violence, no war, no weapons and no greed. Everyone just loves and respects one another. Somewhere over the rainbow, my dream world exists. It has to.
