Have you ever talked about the universe?
About how we
Or about how tiny, how very very tiny humans are
When compared to The Great Unknown.
You probably have.
And at some point
Because you were bored/tired of the subject/feeling overwhelmed
You’ve probably said/thought/dreamt
That Earth, and our solar system, and all the galaxies
Could be nothing more than a snow globe/science project/old shoebox
In the room/lair/basement
Of some crazy/evil/superior being.
Or at least, I have.
I understand what people mean when they say this.
I understand that they are being sarcastic, or saying
“Hey, we’ll never know.”
But at the same time,
The natural next question;
“So does all of this even matter?”
Waking up at six in the morning to get to school
To get an education
To make a difference
Going to the gym everyday
To stay healthy
So you can live-
An extra ten years in the grand schemes of things?
Mathematically it could be written off as a negligible error.
A small miscalculation.
And loving people?
That matters more than anything
These miniscule, inconsequential things we do everyday
They change the world
In a million different miniscule, inconsequential ways.
And those million miniscule, inconsequential things we do,
Or hurt people
They do both.
So join me
Change the world for better
Because even if we are living in a
Snow globe/science project/old showbox in the
Room/lair/basement of a
This is our home.
And it is our privilege and our duty to improve it.
