from this distant vantage point the Earth might not seem in any particular interest but for us it's different consider again that dot that's here that's home that's us on it everyone you love everyone you know everyone you ever heard of every human being who ever was lived out their lives the aggregate of our joy and suffering thousands of confident religions ideologies and economic doctrines every hunter and forager every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization every king and peasant every young couple in love every mother and father hopeful child inventor and explore every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician every superstar, every supreme leader every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam the Earth is a very small stage in a fast cosmic arena think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals emperors so that in glory and triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner how frequent their misunderstandings how eager they are to kill one another how fervent their hatreds our posturings our imagines self-important the delusion 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 the help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves it has been said that astronomy's humbling and character building experience there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny the world to me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known
