Imagine that you are an explorer, an interplanetary ambassador, an extraterrestrial Ferdinand Magellan approaching the planet Earth from the blackness of interstellar space.
Image laying your eyes (or whatever you call your photoreceptors) upon this terraqueous globe for the first time.
Imagine feeling relieved as the whirling clouds and azure oceans of this precious planet grow in your field of view.
Imagine the stark contrast between the unforgiving infinitude of black that you have just emerged from and the amiable white wisps hugging this fragile blue marble.
This world is our only home. Let’s take care of it as we would our mothers.
