There was a long and intense discussions/arguments circulating the recently elected President of US. Some thought it was a monumental victory while others, felt like someone had pierced their hearts with a burning spear.
I feel the need to lighten up everyone’s heart and mind by sharing this video, I hope it could place you in some perspectives on where we stand as fellow human beings in this tiny yet beautiful blue planet.
If there’s an important message to deliver, this will be it.
Here’s my personal favorite excerpt from the video :
The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.
Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.
Also, Happy Birthday Carl Sagan!
