TO ALL OUR CHILDREN, PARENTS, SCIENTISTS AND TEACHERS ALL OVER THE WORLD The stories in this book were written by my sister, Karen McNally, in 1990. She has since passed and crossed over in December of 2005. My hope is to inspire your thinking and captivate interest in the magic of sunlight and its effects on our spirits and in our daily lives. The characters and illustrations by Russel Wayne bring so many smiles to my life, as these characters have captivated the magic, mystery . . . whimsical fun and re-sounding love for our sun. I cannot imagine life without the colors painted in the sky as the sun rises and sets each and every day. For each and every one of you, there is an on-going discussion about the changes occurring on our planet, and renewed interest in the environmental effects of our technological developments. Continue the education and dialogue, inspiring love and respect for our wonderful planet Earth. For the scientists, teachers, parents, role models, and students, including my son Jon, currently attending the University of Alaska in Fairbanks, and all students enrolled and employed in environmental studies, bless you for your gifts and contributions past and present, particularly in Chemistry and Research, as well as all other environmental studies. Don't stop educating us and sharing your knowledge so that we can become better students and role models, as residents responding responsibly for the safety of our human health and protection of our planet Earth. Tell me about yourself. I would like to hear from all of you. Our Children, are our future. Parents, teachers and scientists, you are our inspiration and guiding light. Continue to "light" our way.
