Earth is Where We Must Make Our Stand

Carl Sagan said, "The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand."

For this moment, in our short few seconds of eternity there is no where else to go friends. Our Earth is all we have and if we don't find better ways to treat each other or it, we may burn ourselves right out of existence.  The hard part for many of us is recognizing this reality.

Take a look down the brown band for the small blue dot. That's all of us on Earth. There is something even more important about Earth Day than picking up litter or recycling cans. Earth Day is also about taking care of each other and all the life on this little dot.

Hopefully, we'll figure out better ways to help us cherish and protect our home from the inevitable progress that is to come. Have a positive Pale Blue Dot Day.
