I’ve never heard of star parks, have you? They’re designated areas where the city’s lights are either off or directed downward through a type of shielded fixture that reduces glare, so that it becomes possible to see the starry sky. Doesn’t that sound romantic?
If Audrey Fischer has her way, there will someday be a star park near you no matter where you may be! Her organization, One Star at a Time, is based on the idea that “Starlight belongs to each and every person in the world. A starry night gives people a reason to look up and to realize that others from around the globe share the same sky.”
Audrey’s heart and determination — not to mention her remarkable story — make me want to be better. When asked what she would do if she won the lottery, she answers simply “I would buy the stars back.” I am such a fan of her life.
P.S. — Did you get to see fireworks last night? They are my favorite! But let’s make a rule that July 4th can only fall on Fridays from here on out. : ) Doesn’t it seem like it should be the weekend today?
