Persian Word of the Day- آرزو - arezoo

I came across this YouTube video yesterday that I hadn't seen before- one of those 50 people, 1 question videos, only this one was in Tehran. 

What was the question? If you had a wish that would come true by the end of the day, what would it be? 

The question led me to today's word of the day:

آرزو / arezoo / wish (also a girl's name) 

Watching this video brought tears to my eyes. The things people wish for are all so simple. In the end, no matter where we are from, what language we speak, no matter our cultural differences, we are all people just trying to make it through the day, see loved ones, find a job, earn a decent living. And no matter how many wars you start or sanctions you pose against governments, the only ones who truly stand to suffer are the people... these same people who just want to be able to go home at the end of the day and live their lives in peace.

So, what's your arezoo?
