    Within that terrifyingly tiny space is contained every single human being who was alive at the time.
    Think of it as the most epic selfie ever taken.
    Sagan’s monologue about the photograph—given at Cornell University in 1994—is poetic, hopeful, even a bit mocking at times:
    "We succeeded in taking that picture, and, if you look at it, you see a dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, 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 vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in 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 the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that 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 that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us. It’s been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."

    Isabella reacted to El Bibliotecario for a gallery image, Scoot   
    Scoot se crió en la verdad pero desde muy joven la dejo y se enredó profundamente en una vida totalmente mundana hace 5 años murio su bisabuela paulet una fiel sierva de Dios, esto caló hondo en el, el y su esposa empezaron a asistir a las reuniones y a estudiar, Scoot tuvo el tiempo de recapacitar, en la asamblea pasada se bautizaron. Joven no tienes porque pasar por sufrimientos , confía en Jehová con todo tu corazón "proverbios 3:5"
