Was thinking about this incredible event going on right now with the missing airliner – Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. I think that as tragic as this is the massive nature of this planet is really put into perspective. Who would think that a plane – an airliner – could just disappear? I believe the plane rests at the bottom of the ocean….somewhere.
How small we are as individuals. A planet in excess of 24,000 miles in circumference and populated by more than 7 billion of us – we but a spec of dust in an NFL football stadium. Yet – each of us can live incredible lives with fantastic experiences. We can love, we can laugh, we can feel sorrow. We can make an impact on others through friendships, through church, and with modern technologies through the Internet we can effect countless others.
The world is a massive place and each of us live in our own little section. Take advantage of life daily for you never know when it will be your last. We prepare for economic collapse, natural disasters or maybe even the invasion of some alien force however you never know when stepping off a street corner will mean taking your last breath as a yellow taxi splatters all that you are over a wide area.
Yeah – you just never know.
A teeny, tiny aluminum plane is the vastness of a huge ocean. Yeah – I am not surprised at all it is taking time to find it.
Pardon my random thoughts. Feeling philosophical today.
Take care all –
