May The Force Be With You – The Force of Kindness

Today’s play-of-the-day combines the power of stars with another force—the force of kindness.

Stars are really quite magical. We see them as tiny with our eyes but use them to mean very, very big. Famous people are called Stars, and there are Rock Stars, Super Stars, and Sport Stars. Stars are considered to be a sort of Royalty although not everyone will agree on who is a Star. Businesses and school assignments are given stars of different numbers and colors. It’s no wonder we use stars for making wishes. In lofty goals, we shoot for the stars. Is it any wonder the Star Wars movies have gone from millions to billions of dollars?

The star for today, is being kind. While any month of the year is a wonderful time to be kind to others, February is the Month of the Heart.
