my say on wishes for sons

I believe Mike is right.She is not showing the other sex as weak of the female sex as dominant because man has no clue what a woman go through. It is basically pointing at the desensitized world. Man earns by working hard. He needs to remember what he aimed at when he started working. If it is just money that he is after, then he better know that he does not belong to the human race...which has seen pain right in front of its eyes. It is for both men and women alike that Lucille speaks. She wants to induce the feelings of wonderment and amazement that once existed when we were young. It has to stay with us till we take our last breath.
