Humankind has pondered the role of the sun in our solar system since the beginning of time. The sun holds significance and symbolism. Civilizations throughout the world have personified its importance, venerated and worshiped it as a deity throughout time and history.
Educators share an affinity with the sun, mirroring its ability and power to warm, nurture, and guide the masses. We have dedicated this book to educators who work with some of today’s most challenging youth. We honor you.
