  • If they could only see how nervous I am...maybe they'd take some pity on me...
    After all, this is my big debut...not every day a person gets to make a grand entry on the big stage....
    Everything has been a build-up to this moment...all the waiting...all the anticipation.....all the trial and error..
    All boils down to this moment...it seems like only a short time ago that I had started out.....
    Will they love me..?...what if they don't....?
    Oh my God...this is it ...the shows about to begin...I can barely see my audience...but I know they're out there..
    Here it is, this is it ......I'm floating..I can't believe it ...so gracefully making my way to the front of the stage ....they're here, they're here....

    The gentle hands lift me up to the glass as a soothing voice announces to the crowd, gathered at the window,..."Presenting... Star Rachel Cameron" ..

    Suddenly, there was laughter, smiles, grimaces and tears erupting spontaneously.............oh and the crowd was excited too...
    There were my Parents...and their parents....and Aunts, Uncles...and a few kids....not much bigger than me...(hey...how did they get out there?.. I thought to myself)

    I'm a hit ..I knew it ....they love me...they're waving at me and crying and laughing....
    Gee this is great...it was worth the wait........My name is STAR.....I love life!
