1 000 000 Wishes Come True at Brighton Pride

Ever wondered what happens to people’s wishes? Under the Wishing Bridge in Venice… by the Western Wall in Jerusalem… under a shooting star… or at the Brighton Pride 2014? I truly believe that the wishes made out of pure love find their ways to a force which makes them happen.

This is why I joined this joyful startup in Brighton, England: a Guinness record attempt to send away 1 million messages of equality and peace from the beach with the waves of the sea.

“When we dream alone it is only a dream, but when many dream together it is the beginning of a new reality.” – says the manifesto of the organizer, Dream of Pride. The idea of making a happening dedicated to the LGBTQ community came up among a group of friends, after loosing a dear friend, Daniel Hamsworth.

He was only 36 years old when he lost his battle against AIDS – but by now he is probably doing what he always dreamed of: painting beautiful pieces of art in Heaven.

After the event you’ll be able to read all the wishes on this blog, sent from 1 million people worldwide on and meanwhile here’s a funny one that cached my attention. “I’m gay. You’re straight. From your point of view I’m different. From my point of view, you’re different. So what? I wish everyone could think this way.”
