Manic Monday: The orbital perspective

"For the 50 years that we've been flying in space astronauts & cosmonauts have always commented on how beautiful, how fragile, how peaceful, how tranquil and how breathtaking our planet is from space. These are not cliches that astronauts say because it feels good; it truly is moving to look at our planet from space....We could look down and feel empathy for the struggles that all people face and see that each and every one of us is riding through the universe together on this spaceship that we call earth. That we're all interconnected, that we're all in this together, that we're all family. That's what we call the orbital perspective."
