From wiser heads than mine

Final post of the year, folks. I thought I’d leave the summary to one of the sorely-missed geniuses of our age:

“…and our small planet, at this moment, here we face a critical branch-point in history. What we do with our world, right now, will propagate down through the centuries and powerfully effect the destiny of our descendents. It is well within our power to destroy our civilization, and perhaps, our species as well. If we capitulate to superstition or greed or stupidity, we can plunge our world into a darkness deeper than the time between the collapse of classical civilization and the Italian renaissance. But, we are also capable of using our compassion and our intelligence, our technology and our wealth, to make an abundant and meaningful life for every inhabitant of this planet. To enhance enormously our understanding of the universe, and to carry us to the stars.”

– Carl Sagan.

Happy New Years, everybody. Be safe, have fun and tell those who know you love them that you love them anyway. 🙂

Thanks for coming with me on the ride so far. Next year, we destroy.
