It does put things into perspective. When you can see Earth as a fragile blue and white planet, just floating and spinning in the the vast silky black expanse of the universe, you start to think about how very finite Earth is. And how everything that we hold dear, all the things that are precious to us - all the trees and animals and their lives and our lives, and art and music and poetry, all the people and stories and dreams and loves, are all contained on just this - this small, fragile, finite planet full of wonder and beauty.
When you see Earth from this perspective, you begin to wonder why we spend our time - our finite time on this finite Earth - squabbling and fighting over borders and race and religion, instead of celebrating the wonderfulness that exists here on our little planet. My hope that we all learn, and understand, a little more each day, about the preciousness of this planet, all it contains, each other and other lives. That is our way forward, our task while we stay here.
