Above is the famous “Pale Blue Dot”: a picture of Earth from 6 billion kilometers (3.7 billion miles) away. I make sure to look at it at least once a month, or after an argument, to remind me how small we are and how insignificant our differences are. Now I’m sharing it with you, because many of us still need reminding.

"We're all in this together" and so the only goal for TATA, C4I and all the rest of us is to get rid of the "lines" we keep having to cross to get to the other side. "In real life there are no sides." http://thelastwhy.ca/poem/
