Student, Colombian Languages: English, Spanish Portland, OR 10/19/07 Making a Wish on a Shooting Star When one sees a shooting star, he is presented with a rare opportunity. If he immediately makes a wish after he has seen it, and tells nobody of the details of his wish, it will come true. I first came across this piece of folklore when I was driving about six months ago on the Interstate 5 highway. On the way to the Weekender for the USC versus UC Berkeley football game, I was with my friend Alex and a couple of others. I do not quite remember where we were; wherever it was, it was far removed from any city lights. We could see the stars above in a way that was utterly impossible in the bright city of Los Angeles. As I watched the road ahead, I suddenly saw a flash of light across the sky. It was a shooting star. Startled, I announced my sighting. Immediately my friend Alex told me to make a wish. As I was about to tell her my wish, she stopped me, saying that if I told anybody before it came true, it would not come true at all. Samuel Gong, 19
