I come from the world, don’t you?
I didn’t ask to be here, but by happenstance of birth, here I am.
I’m no more or less than you and am not entitled to any more or less than you.
I cry. I smile. I laugh. I dream. I breathe.
While I’m here, I need the Earth, and the Earth needs me.
I am here but for a moment. And what a moment it is!
What has been your favorite
moment on Earth in recent days?
