Have you heard the tale of the paper dancer? Listen closely my dear little one and I will tell you a story so full of hope it will melt your heart. Once upon a time, not too long ago, there lived a princess. One day, through no fault of her own, her kingdom faced a mighty storm, and everything she owned was destroyed. Her once regal gowns were turned into tattered rages. The princess, knowing that true beauty shines from within, did not fuss nor pout nor weep. She simply dusted herself off, and lifted her head .Then, walking through the ruins of her palace, stumbled upon several sheets of soft white paper. Now the papers, which had mostly been used as napkins, were not in the least bit glamorous. In fact, they were quite lowly and common. Still, the princess seeing the paper for its potential, managed to pull them all together, and made herself a most splendid white dress. Stepping out into the gardens, the villagers marveled at her smile. Dressed in her fine paper dress, she looked more regal than she had ever looked before. The skies, touched by her response, rained down a beautiful crown of stars over her head, a reminder that beauty can come even from ruins.
