We spend every day of our lives trying to become something significant.
We work harder to get raises and promotions.
We get more money, we buy better things.
Better educations for our children.
We hold rallies for equal rights, raise money to help those in need.
We protest against evil-doers and we battle constantly for the political affiliation
of our choosing.
We stop speaking to family members over single arguments.
We leave loved ones behind, in search of something greater.
And in those quiet moments, when the entire world is watching as the Earth rebels against it's helpless inhabitants, we become eerily aware of how insignificant it all is.
Tonight that feeling is heavy on my heart.
