I'm not one who favors mathematics, but bear with me for a moment while I present some fascinating numbers to you.
I'm not sure if anyone else's head is spinning with all these numbers, but I'm in utter shock of them.
Here's a harsh reality:
In the grand scheme of things, I am nothing. This is something I've accepted, and something I am not bothered by. Because in the small scale of things, I am everything. To the people that have graciously accepted me into their lives, I am as much a part of them as they are of me. Everyone I know exists on this tiny and immensely beautiful planet. All that I will ever truly know, exists right here on this rock being capitulated through space.
"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.
Life is short. Our individual actions may only affect things on a small scale, however our collective actions affect this pale blue dot that we call home. This is not by chance that you and I exist here at random together. We have an opportunity of choices for our picking.
So let me tell you: Choose to do the right thing. Choose to be the better person. Choose to be courageous and brave. Choose to spread joy. Choose love, and then choose it again.
If I should do anything on this planet and within my lifetime, let me love.
