A Hard Working City Needs A Hard Working Star—It Gives So Much And Asks So Little

A hard working city like Houston, Texas, needs a hard-working star in the sky to keep us warm and to meet all our celestial needs.

The sun asks nothing of us but that we let it shine.

On the other hand, what I ask of you is that you vote in every election, pay your taxes, and be involved in public affairs.

Given that I ask more and do less than our star in the sky, it is no wonder that I am far less well-liked than is our sun.

  1. Regarding that star, we might also want to do what’s necessary to prevent too much of its UV rays from penetrating our ozone or getting trapped from too much GHGs in the atmosphere that will increase temps, melt ice, raise sea levels, create greater droughts and floods. Other than that, shine on!

  2. Good reminder. Our star asks no more us that we use what it offers in a prudent way.
