“And then she sang, ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, little star. How I wonder what you are. Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky. Twinkle, Twinkle, little star.’ She meant the world to me. She was my diamond. She made the difference in my life” spoke the twinkling star while staring off into the fireplace in the confined living room of her house.
“What do you mean, Mama? Who was your diamond?” asked Julie Star. “Do you mean that the human girl changed your life? And how this is suppose to help me find my purpose in life? All of my friends show off their talents while I don’t even know what mine is. I want to be like all of the other stars and light up the night sky at night.”
“I’ll tell you something. How about we eat some of your aunt’s fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and some fresh squeezed lemonade, and I can tell you a story. How does that sound?”
Julie Star could not contain herself and squeaked with excitement. “Yummy! I love her cookies!”

She lifted her sleepy head off her bed and walked sluggishly towards the window. In the distance, Little Star waved her hand before jumping into the blanket of darkness towards Earth. From down below, Julie Star heard the voice of a beautiful young girl accompanied by a piano.
“Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. How I wonder what you are. Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. How I wonder what you are?”

- Stop being clueless about life. “I like me,” said by Leo Buscaglia during one of his speeches. He was a professor at the University of Southern California, and one day learned about death by a fellow student.
