Occasionally, we as a species take a break from messing with our neighbors, screwing with the environment, and generally acting like bad-tempered three year olds coming off a crack and PCP bender. Yesterday was one of those days.
As you go through your day today, stop occasionally, and remember that you’re a member of a species that took a hunk of metal and plastic and heaved it up into the dark night, just so we could get a better look at a pebble that spins around our home. Realize that once we had our look, once we’d gotten what we came for, our monkey curiosity still wasn’t satisfied, and so we banged our hunk of metal and plastic onto the pebble, just on the off chance that we’d get another glance or two.
So, whatever else this day throws your way, know this: we can do powerful and wonderful things, when we set our minds to it. Why don’t we do that more often?
