The one thing that seems to get lost along the way is the planet Earth. This wonderful gift from God or accident is a reality that we can see and feel. Yet we have plundered and wasted it until it is begining to loose all the things that made it special.
I ask you, is the Earth an oyster for us to consume or a pearl for us to treasure and admire?
We all love to look up at the stars and wonder about other life and planets like ours, but I can tell you that they are a long way away and we are likely to never step foot on one of them or meet these other creatures. The distances are just to big and the demands too great for our meager resources. This is our one chance! Our only place to exist, perhaps in the whole galaxy or universe! We must take it upon our selves to be guardians of this planet and not its destroyers.
This is the basis for my beliefs in religion and God. Not some idea of us being special creatures made in the image of God, but stewards of this ball of creation.
