 “The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”

Today, I know nothing of humility
I know nothing of gratitude.

Today, I know only anger
I feel only fear.

Today, I will look for Peace
I will call upon my own God.

Today, I will lend my back
I will offer my hand.

Tonight, I will sleep well.

Tomorrow, I will grow.
