"To see the earth as it truly is, small and blue in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see riders on the earth together, brothers on that bright loveliness in the eternal cold - brothers who know now they are truly brothers." - Archibald Mc Leish
This quote reflects a belief I’ve always had. The disputes various groups of humans have always had: white vs. black, male vs. female, Muslim vs. Christian, American vs. Iraqi, and so on, don’t really amount to a hill of beans when one considers Earth’s place in the cosmos.
Our home planet is a small, insignificant fragile world in a backwater of the Milky Way galaxy, which is only one among countless galaxies. Our petty human disputes are less than nothing compared to all of this.
If this planet is to survive and prosper, humans need to get beyond their minuscule differences and unite as one people, as citizens of Earth.
