“My mom was shot twice in san Bernardino… i’m only 11. So If I can get past it so can you. I hope you get past this, and live your life.”

Ellie Paez San Bernardino, CA

"It was truly a labor of love making the stars with my little boy...it was the best way I could explain any part of that tragedy to him. I just told him that I don't know why bad things happen and sometimes you just have be the good you want to see in this crazy world."

Faith Leonard Volunteer & Mom - Arizona

"How can a piece of wood shaped into a star have such power? These little colored stars began popping up on our trees, utility poles, broken and battered fences. I didn’t know where they came from. They just catch your eye in the middle of chaos and sadness. I’ve learned more about these little things and their unseemly way of changing a moment.
