Are we all like stars?

I recently learned that there have been about 107 billion people on Planet Earth so far, and that includes you and me. Being only one individual among that huge number may make us feel small or insignificant, but each of us is one in the approximate count. Still...the stars in the universe, one of which is our very own sun, the center of our solar system, the perfect sphere we are dependent upon for survival, are far more numerous than all of the humans ever lived. What if we are like stars? If each of us were a star, we may give off light and energy and to those around us. We may be as important to someone as our star has been to each of us earthly inhabitants. It is something to think about.
