#ScienceSunday The Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan
This is one of the best speeches ever given. It speaks to importance of understanding, communication, and tolerance, and how important it is that we work towards cross cultural understanding, scientific knowledge, and peace. If you like it and its message, reshare. Edit:
I posted this before the recent shooting at the #Sikh
temple in Wisconsin today- it was sheer coincidence, but it highlights the point.
"Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner. 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." http://youtu.be/4PN5JJDh78I
