This is a well-designed tour through the concept and implementation of human rights. What are your thoughts on the subject?
"If the earth were only a few feet in diameter, floating a few feet above a field somewhere, people would come from everywhere to marvel at it.
People would walk round it, marveling at its big pools of water, its little pools and the water flowing between the pools.
People would marvel at the bumps on it, and the holes in it, and at the very thin layer of gas surrounding it and the water suspended in the gas.
The people would marvel at all the creatures walking around the surface of the ball and at the creatures in the water.
The people would declare it as sacred because it was the only one, and they would protect it so that it would not be hurt.
The ball would be the greatest wonder known, and the people would come to pray to it, to be healed, to gain knowledge, to know beauty and to wonder how it could be.
People would love it, and defend it with their lives, because they would somehow know that their lives, their own roundness, could be nothing without it.
If the world were only a few feet in diameter."
These are not my words but I remembered them from a long time ago and now can't find the author. It seemed a good start to a blog about appreciating, enjoying, exploring and sharing our Earth, even if it is too big to hold :-)
