If this works, let's all agree to dance.

It’s one of the best online petitions that we’ve seen in quite some time. And it would do the entire Earth a world of good if the wish was granted.

Started on by a Rome, Italy, woman, it’s a petition to let David Bowie live again. As you might have heard, Bowie died this week at the age of 69, and much of the Internet has mourned with a petition to rename an Austin, Texas, street in his name and with the LGBT community remembering him fondly.

But this petition is hoping that someone or something somewhere can resurrect him.

Though God or whom it may concern hasn’t issued an official response to the petition, this tweet from a couple days ago might give us an indication of whether the petition will be successful.
