The Pale Blue Dot – The Sagan Series 10

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’d better take care of it and the people in it.

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