Gratitude

Isn't Earth splendid? Isn't life on Earth grand? Isn't the human species amazing? Without a doubt, the answer to all three questions is a resounding, "Yes, indeed." The purpose of this page is to pause, reflect, honor, and treasure Earth. The purpose of this page also is to celebrate all of the wonderful life forms on Earth.

For better or worse, humans should be grateful for having been fortunate enough to participate in this miraculous and splendrous thing known as life. Whether a future of Heaven or Hell, life on Earth remains what humans choose to make of it.
