Today's Beautiful Gem: 'One Earth' by (Astronaut) Russell Schweichart

"As you pass from sunlight into darkness and back again every
hour and a half, you become startingly aware how artificial
are thousands of boundaries we've created to separate and
define. And for the first time in your life you feel in your
gut the precious unity of the Earth and all the living things
it supports. The dissonance between this unity you see and
the separateness of human groupings that you know exists is
starkly apparent."

Om Santih! Peace! - J. K. Mohana Rao
