Putting It All In Perspective: The Pale Blue Dot
The world can be a very cold place, but it can also be a wonderful one. All of the historically rooted conflicts that are currently taking place can cause us to forget our connections to one another.
This video helped me to pause and reflect on those connections.
Realizing that we are all that we have; conflicts and all can be anxiety provoking. Yet, this realization can also present us with opportunities to change harmful the ways we treat each other.
“The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena.”
“To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the only home we’ve ever known; the pale blue dot.” —Carl Sagan
