When I am afraid, I remember:
America is a blip in human history,
Humans are a blip in Earth’s history,
Earth is a blip in this Galaxy,
And this Galaxy is a blip in the Universe.
This helps to calm me, and it gives me perspective and hope,
No matter what I’m facing on a personal or collective level.
And I’m grateful for great friends who help remind me of these things along the journey.
