How the Sun Was Made

Once, a long, long time ago, the earth was always dark. But, one day… everything changed. Many people thought it was a shooting star. Now… everybody knows different.

This is how it occurred……………………………….

Once a long, long time ago, a woman in China was hanging her clothes on
the line to dry in her backyard like she d ay. Though it was dark, without the sun
the girl could see because it had been like this her whole life.

One night while she was doing this, the biggest star whizzed across the sky. Then, as suddenly as it started it stopped. For the first time ever, it was light.

Everyone who saw it thought it was a miracle. Even the old people thought it was a miracle. The only light they had seen was from fires, moon and stars.

Although everyone was grateful, they were also afraid it would leave at any time. That never happened unless it left and came back while they were sleeping.

And that’s how the sun became to be!!!

The End!!!!!
