Stars have too long been symbols of the unattainable.
They should not be so.
For although our physical hands cannot reach them,
we can touch them in other ways.
Let stars stand for those things
which are ideal and radiant in life;
if we seek sincerely and strive hard enough,
it is not impossible to reach them,
even though the goals seem distant at the onset.
And how often do we touch stars?
When we find them close by in
the shining light of great souls,
the sparkling universe of humanity around us.
