On Our Sleeves: Star

What does a star mean to you?

A star is a beacon of hope–a shining light that guides the way. It’s a symbol of positivity, happiness or renewal. Look up into the nighttime sky, and the stars have a magical and inspiring presence. Is there someone in your life who is a shining star to you? A star also is a miracle, persuading us to make a wish when we see one cascade across the sky.

For some, stars might represent their goals and dreams…the possibility of a step forward or a new beginning. We want all children and their families to have the light to find their dreams, or to have the chance for a new beginning–one of hope, joy and good health.
