DENVER - Before you die, what do you want to do? It's the sort of question that will make you think.
That's the question being asked by a piece of art at the corner of Colfax and Bannock across from the Denver City and County Building.
It's been there for a while now, but appeared to be gaining momentum on the days leading up to the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech.
The wall's goal is simple: to ask people what their dreams are; what they want to accomplish in life.
"I think it's a really great idea to get people involved," said Amanda Keeran, who was visiting from Tampa, Florida. "It's good to have people think about what they want to do".
Keeran wasn't sure what she would write on the wall, until she looked at some other entries. That's when it hit her.
"Before I die I want to believe in myself," she wrote.
The personal posts are the most memorable. Some people ask for a better life, others asked for love and one person even asked "to be clean" of drugs.
"I think it's powerful because when you write things down they become a lot more real. You have to be really honest about what you want," said Anna Zupon, who also wrote on the wall.
Zupon's entry wasn't aimed at herself. Instead, it was aimed at others.
"Before I die, I want to live closer to my family and on a farm," she said with a smile.
Every day the wall is washed off. The dreams written on it disappear, but remain in the hearts of those who wrote them.
