We'll dream a little dream this week, as we revisit some favorite Metro Connection stories about Washingtonians' wishes and aspirations. We'll hear the tale of the Washingtonian who brought clean water to the masses. We'll meet local teens pushing to redefine our national immigration debate. And we'll talk with a D.C. lawyer who also has a thriving career as a magician.
