~ Idea 4933 ~
At 2:00am in the middle of the night this overwhelming thought woke me up: that we humans, of all the millions of species on this planet, smaller or bigger, we are the only one which has acquired an almost total knowledge of the planet on which we live.
This is such a gigantic evolutionary, cosmic achievement that we cannot continue to think, to like, to act, to behave as our forefathers did. We have an incredible responsibility toward that planet, its functioning, its elements, all its species', its preservation, its nature and future.
I have learned this in the UN, the first world-wide organization in which I have lived all my adult life. I therefore cannot accept, it would be irresponsible of me to act as a being born in Belgium, a national of France, become German then French again, a resident of the United States and finally of Costa Rica. None of these nations can be one hundred percent right and claim my total allegiance and unreserved duty and obedience, including the duty to kill for it.
No, it cannot be. I am a human, a sentient, living, responsible being of this incredible Earth and humanity in the universe, a living unit, cell, a son of Mother Earth. Only that is right, all the rest must be secondary.

Every morning I ask God what more I can do for the peace and happiness of the world, and I always get an answer.

Our life is a faint tracing on the surface of mystery, like the idle curved tunnels of leaf miners on the face of a leaf. We must somehow take a wider view, look at the whole landscape, really see it, and describe what’s going on here. Then we can at least wail the right question into the swaddling band of darkness, or, if it comes to that, choir the proper praise.
~ Annie Dillard
