Wish of a High School Boy

SCRIPT

A high school boy was studying very hard to enter a prestigious university.
One day God appeared in his dream.

G:    You are studying very hard. So I will realize one of your wishes.

The boy showed a world map to God.


B:    I want a world with no war and with no hatred.
G:    Oh, that’s very difficult. Please give me something more personal.
B:    Well, then I would like to enter either Harvard or Cambridge.
G:    Well, let’s see.
       Would you please show me the world map again?
