I was falling asleep last night and I imagined myself floating up through my roof, over the city. I went up and up like a balloon trailing a long string. I left the planet and kept sailing onward until I had a good view. Then I stopped and just looked at our little planet zooming through space like nobody's business. Swinging around our warm, bright sun.
"Wow," I thought, "Look at it go. So small and insignificant. Any major fluctuation in the sun's radiation and BAM...no more electronic devices. Lots of cancer, though. Crop failure like crazy.
But the earth, it was so gorgeous, it almost broke my heart just to look at it. I sat for a while longer out there, just taking it all in, then I slowly floated back into my bed.
If everyone could see it, or enough people, anyway...the way I saw the planet in my dream...
Could we have peace?
I'm not so sure. But I think we could have something like it.
