You might wonder why there is a seastar here. Many species of sea stars, also known as starfish, have the miraculous ability to grow back an arm if they lose one and some species can even regenerate an entire body if there is just one bit of arm remaining. The point being – they get hurt and they re-invent themselves. They regenerate and are renewed. That’s what we do here. Provide tools for regeneration and renewal.
