“I have a great job in the universe of occupations. What do I do? I’m a “star polisher.” It’s a very important job. If you want to know how important, just go out at night and look at the stars twinkling and sparkling.
You see, I’m a teacher. The stars are the children in my class. My job is to take them in –just as they are–and shine and buff them and send them out to take their places as bright, twinkling beacons of light in our world.
Each night when I look up at the stars in the sky, I am reminded of my very important job and awesome responsibility. Then I get out my soft buffing cloth and my bottle of polish in preparation for the next day…for my class of little stars.
Each star is unique. Some are tarnished, some are wrinkled. Some stars are warm, some are cool. Some stars are not shining as brightly as they could be. As I buff and polish, I train and teach my little stars; I tell them that the world cannot do without each and every one of them. I tell them that they will shine just as bright as they possibly can with a little effort from both of us. I tell them that they can be bright, shiny stars and the world will be a better place just because of their light. ” adapted from Leah Beck
