What Makes Life On Earth Precious?

Our Place in the Universe

Modern astronomy has given us a perspective on our place in the universe. Life is a fragile development in an air pocket on the surface of Earth, a small planet revolving around a minor star in a galaxy of trillions of stars in a world of billions of galaxies.

Competing Agendas

Our fate is intertwined with our planetary air pocket and the life that shares it. Within the “small space” many competing agendas bump up against each other — species against species, group against group, individual against individual.

Importance of Life

If humans are important, it is because we are important to ourselves. And, if life is important, it is because life is important to us.
