    Default The Pale Blue Dot

    This video, narrated by astronomer Carl Sagan, definitely puts into perspective how tiny we are in relation to the whole universe. However, it also reminds me that despite the enormity and vastness of space, Earth is the only home we have; as a result, we壇 better take care of it and the people in it.

    Too often, the human race gets so consumed with power and being 途ight and dirty politics that we forget about our ultimate obligation to take care of each other by acting wisely, conservatively and responsibly. It痴 an obligation that if neglected will be our downfall and if fulfilled will be our legacy.

    Carl Sagan was an amazing individual (having passed way too young in 1996). I can remember watching his mini-seriew the Cosmos on PBS. He was adept at putting things in layman terms. Do a search on him starting with Wikipedia. What a loss to have him succumb way to young.
